Collection: Sid Dickens

Dickens began making Memory Blocks while he was working in Vancouver during the early 1990s in a studio on Hasting St.

Memory Blocks have evolved to become individually hand crafted plaster tiles, measuring 6" × 8" × 114" and finished to a porcelain-like quality, cracked to create an aged look and feel. Some memory blocks are embellished with silver and gold leafing done by hand.

The Memory Blocks are now internationally distributed and Dickens has a strong following of collectors that create websites and forums on his behalf. The marketing strategy is similar to Lladro and Royal Dalton porcelain figurines, where styles and collections are often produced in limited runs, and retired pieces are valued as highly collectible.
