Meet the Artist

Frann S. Addison received her undergraduate degree from Skidmore College, and Frann Addison in the studiobegan creating Judaica while working toward her Masters of Fine Arts degree at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. While at Cranbrook, Ms. Addison created her pieces of Judaica which she exhibited in her graduate art show. Her extensive research on these ceremonial objects culminated in the writing of her Master’s thesis, “Jewish Ceremonial Objects Used in the Home.”  It is this research that Ms. Addison has used as a basis for her lecture/slide presentation which traces the history and evolution of Judaica.

Ms. Addison works independently in her own studio creating her ceremonial pieces for private individuals as well as for institutions. She has participated in numerous invitational and juried shows and has been featured extensively in many prominent publications. One of her ritual objects, an etrog container, was purchased by the Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, for their permanent collection.
