Diversity T557 Sid Dickens Memory Block

This block is a Limited Edition in that it has a blue back and is signed by Sid, it has been released in support of the Canadian Autism Society. The block will become part of the current collection but will have a regular black back and will not be signed.

Sid Dickens’ Memory Blocks are made of a high quality porcelain-like plaster, free of any toxic solvents. He creates his own handmade 6” x 8” polyurethane moulds, which are used several times before disposal. Plaster is manually poured into the molds and left to harden.  The blocks are left to dry naturally and then stored in a muffled kiln to release any remaining moisture.

Once the Memory Block is dry, hand-crafted and top-coated, the decorating stage begins. Different techniques of glazing, gilding, and staining are methodically applied in layers to achieve the colour,  texture and desired finish. Many of the Memory Blocks also contain metals (iron paint, gold and silver leaf, etc)– leading to a tactile and reflective texture.

Due to the hand made nature of the products finishes may vary

Size: 6 x 8 inches

Inscription on the reverse: “Confident and proud, I love myself for me for there is no one better to be.”
