What are RLE Memory Blocks?

RLE stands for Retailer Limited Editions and these Memory Blocks are created by Sid exclusively for our Retailers. These can only be purchased through our retail stores and will not be available for sale online.  These very special blocks are only available to registered Sid Dickens retailers and are all signed on the reverse by Sid.

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.

 

This 2022 RLE collection has already been retired but I have managed to get hold of a few of each of these beauties and they are available to pre order now for delivery at the end of June.

Don’t think about these for too long as there wont be any more made, generally there are only between 150-300 of each piece and they are all very special. Which will you choose?

Size: 6X8 in. | Please note that slight differences, when compared to the image, should be expected due to the handmade nature of the Blocks
