Fraktur Examples made during Pennsylvania German Design class

Here are some frakturs and a scraffito plate that I worked on during the recent  Pennsylvania German Design class at the Arms Making Workshop at Conner Prairie. In addition to teaching fraktur and making several examples, I actually completed the scraffito of four plates during the class. Jim Pease assisted me during the Paper Arts class where we taught Pennsylvania German Fraktur. Larry Gillam, the chief potter at Conner, taught the Redware Scraffito class. Great time! If you've never attended the Arms Making Workshop you should check into it.
