It has been said that Sid Dickens Memory Blocks strike a perfect balance between intrigue and artistic appreciation. Several reasons may come into play for invoking such an observation.
For Sid Dickens admirers, it is recognizable that many careful steps are taken to bring a Memory Block from its early vision to its place on your wall. Carefully handcrafted from start to finish in their Vancouver-based studio, each Memory Block undergoes a unique process at the hands of numerous highly skilled and specialized artisans using traditional raw materials and artistic techniques.
Memory Blocks are hand crafted plaster, 6" x 8" x 1 1/4", finished to a porcelain-like quality, cracked to create an aged look and feel. Sid Dickens' work is produced by a group of 30 young emerging artists in a studio space in Vancouver, Canada. Each Memory Block is hand poured hydrostone plaster, all tiles are hand painted (the Iron Series requires 3 coats), silver and gold leafing is done by hand, and finally the Memory Blocks are hand stained. Each Memory Block is considered a piece of art, and there are over 5 people that do work on each one of them. There are many copies on the market, which have the look of being mass produced, as most of them are. The hours of work that go into creating each Memory Block make them each an individual collectible treasure.
