I was first introduced to Sid Dickens Memory Blocks 10 years ago when I was gifted one by my Sister in Law, who is Canadian; from that moment on, I was hooked. Hand made by the Canadian sculptor Sid Dickens UK these 6×8 inch blocks are truly a thing of beauty. Each block holds a special meaning on the reverse, reflecting the image that is created on the front.
Handcrafted from a porcelain type plaster. No two blocks look the same and when hung together can create the most stunning installations in your home.
They can be wall-mounted, framed or displayed on tabletop stands whichever you choose. Create a display that matches your personality or a family collection where you each get to choose a piece that means something to you; the possibilities are endless and fluid-like life itself. We currently hold over 50 blocks in stock of the current collection.
All blocks can be pre-ordered with Sid Dickens UK, and we can discuss individual requirements through our consultation process. Email or call us to arrange this.
Initially trained as a sculptor, Sid Dickens was quickly distinguished in the early 90s for his groundbreaking, unconventional, and prolific Memory Blocks. Describing himself as extremely motivated and a relentless beholder, Sid continues to take inspiration from his travels and constant research around the world. With numerous adoring fans and celebrity collectors like Sir Elton John, Liv Tyler, Dolce & Gabanna, Bono, Sting, Phil Collins, and Hilary Duff, his name and unique Memory Blocks are recognized worldwide.
Here at Hudson Belle, we are an exclusive supplier for Sid Dickens Uk.
Born in Prince Rupert from a family of fishermen in the Pacific Coast of Canada, Sid Dickens always knew his destiny was to become an artist and this hardy coastal town in Northern British Columbia, provided a place to foster imagination in a rugged, natural world. Sid’s father and grandfather made their living from commercial fishing, to which Sid was introduced at the age of thirteen. Working at this on and off for over a decade earned him a stringent work ethic and the funds he needed to follow his true passion: art.
He studied at Vancouver's prestigious Emily Carr University of Art and Design while working at his studio and experimenting with unusual materials which ultimately became a trademark of his distinctive style. After an inspirational trip to Europe, he went to live in Mexico to study bronze casting. In 1994, inspired by an unexpected customer who discovered his first prototype of the hand-made cast tile and immediately ordered hundreds of pieces, Sid Dickens set up his first workshop in downtown Vancouver to manufacture his work – fueling since, a formidable and ever-growing collection which we supply at Sid Dickens UK.
Fast forward 25 years to the present day and you will find Sid splitting his time between his main studio secluded in the misty Haida Gwaii, on the Pacific Coast of Canada and his Vancouver head office and production studio.
Known as the Canadian Galápagos for its endemic wildlife, Haida Gwaii is a torch-shaped archipelago and is located underneath the Alaska panhandle; it remains one of the few remote and pristine locations in the West Coast of North America.
Surrounded by the passionate raw beauty and a mystical atmosphere, Sid Dickens studio - 'his sanctuary' – offers an oasis of peace and freedom and a constant source of inspiration for his prolific work.
In the Vancouver studio, Sid has his own laboratory, or as he dubs it "his cooking table" where he works his recipes and conjures up the idiosyncratic Memory Block's finishes; a mysterious and exciting den of bubbling pots, bottles of liquid and dark coloured powders.
Innovative finishes are achieved by his process of working through experimentation with an unusual combination of materials and techniques. For some of the designs, he has literally invented his own glazing formulas - structured to emphasize and challenge specific attributes of plaster and to respond to each piece's unique architectural volume.
