Joan Huggard of CityBitz… an artist, studio, rooftop and Explore

Joan Huggard of CityBitz Art Studio is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn.  Joan is an established artist with many years experience in many areas including; furniture restoration, photography, resin and is actively a stained glass artist.  She is an all around mixed media artist!  I was lucky enough to be invited to her studio to see her work, talk with her and then we explored the area one on one -What at treat!  Getting there was easy and up I went to Joan’s Art Studio.

When I arrived Joan had been cutting earrings out of stained glass – using her custom fit glass cutter by Tonny G. from Manhattan Stained Glass.

Joan also showed me some of her Custom Flasks – creating your own custom flask for your friends, family or co-workers?!  This is an awesome idea!  Here is Project Custom / Prohibition – which took many hours of work and created many design challenges which Joan plans to do many more.  Custom Work is also Available – Tweet Joan for more information @citybitz
