II Mio Re SP18 Sid Dickens Memory Block

Designed with Valentines Day in mind this block is part of a release of six blocks which will sit within the larger collection. Love Letter is a take on the classic T01 Red Hearts With Script which is due to retire this year, it has been with the brand since 1994! With love in mind this collection feeds the romantics amongst us while also catering to those of us who prefer black over red.

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
