Ripe harvest of golden grapes filling the bowls of banqueting gods.
Collection: January 2003
- Size: 6x8 in.
- This particular tile is pre-owned and was made in Sid's early days - the sides are his classic textured plaster with coffee-toned antique patina. See last photo for example. The front and sides are in excellent condition, and there is slight wear on the back.
Sid Dickens Memory Blocks are made in Vancouver, Canada by the founder and artist Sid Dickens. Each Memory Blocks is poured hydrostone plaster that has been hand painted, then finished to a porcelain-like quality and cracked to create an aged look and feel. It takes over 5 people to finish one piece, making each one an individual collectible treasure. Innovative finishes are achieved by his own process of working through experimentation with an unusual combination of materials and techniques. For some of the designs he has invented his own glazing formulas - structured to emphasize and challenge specific attributes of plaster and to respond to each piece's unique architectural volume.
