Frakturby Cathy Grafton on 06/20/16
I have loved Fraktur work ever since my first visit to Ephrata Cloister in Pennsylvania. I bought a small framed piece there and love the flowers, birds and hearts that much of the Fraktur work embodies. So I've started to create some silk ribbon pieces using Fraktur designs. I think one of the big appeals to me is the use of negative space and the very elegant stylized flowers and birds. It will be fun this summer to continue to explore this lovely art form and see what I can come up with. Will post a few pictures on my website as some point.
