Happy Birthday: Harriete Estel Berman
Harriete Estel Berman is a contemporary artist who was born on October 24th. She is best known for her upcycled sculptures and jewelry that provide commentary on social themes.
Her pieces are really awesome! They're clever and their messages are clear. I think her work really stands out because they aren't overworked. Upcycled art uses found objects and can sometimes look mismatched or forced, but not Harriete's work! Her assembled pieces go together so perfectly it's as if they were always together.
Normally I'd share an inspiring quote by the birthday artist but for Berman I gotta direct you to her website. It's jammed packed with information about her artwork and studio practice AS WELL AS forms, advice, and recommendations about the business of being an artist. Super helpful information!
