Frann Addison


Frann Addison is an award winning, highly acclaimed artist based in Acton, Ma who makes unique, handmade Judaic objects. She loves to work with found materials and they are central to many of her mezuzahs. She combs antique stores and flea markets to find objects to incorporate into her art work. Each one of her mezuzot is unique so check out her website at to get a sense of her work.

I enjoy seeing the potential in found objects and antique elements. Combining my metalsmithing skills with my artistic vision, I often transform these components into unique Jewish ritual objects. Stylish Hebrew calligraphy, blended with the masterful use of pewter, brass, copper, and glass, make for my unique Judaica. My work acknowledges the past, yet offers new and unusual forms which satisfy the demands of ritual requirements. I take great pleasure in knowing that my Judaica will be lovingly used by individuals or families as they perform ancient rituals linking past and present. Working independently in my own studio I enjoy creating specially commissioned ceremonial pieces for individuals as well as for institutions. I am happy to incorporate your family’s treasured heirlooms into a piece of Judaica
