Sid Dickens Memory Blocks
Each Memory Block is hand 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.
