My guests this Thursday, August 9th at 3 p.m. PDT/6EDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk are Harriete Estel Berman and French Thompson, who will discuss "The Ins and Outs of Shipping" for artists and makers. Ms. Berman was among a team of artist who presented the topic at this year's SNAG Professional Development Seminar in Scottsdale, AZ and on our show, they'll be distilling that information into a solid hour of shipping tips and tricks
About this year's SNAG PSD: Shipping artwork from point A to point B should be a pretty straight-forward proposition, but if you have ever shipped a fragile, valuable, large or small object, you know that getting it there can sometimes be like trying to sift through a bucket of eels. There are many shippers, many methods, and finding the right answers can be slippery work.
About Harriete: Harriete Estel Berman uses post consumer, recycled materials to construct artwork ranging from jewelry and teacups to entire lawns and sculpture with social commentary. Sculptures include domestic appliances remarking on the roles of women, the influence of advertising and commentary about our consumer society. 
About French: French Thompson walked into the Denver Art Museum an English major and left an aspiring metalsmith. From that personal epiphany has grown an experiential gallery on the Main Street of Old Scottsdale.
