Oct. 8th & 9th – Joanna Huff of Flashy Glass Creations
Joanna Huff is a native of Virginia. She was born and raised in the small town community of Floyd County, where art and crafts are pretty much the culture. She was encouraged very early to express herself with her artistic eye. Growing up with many craftspeople in her family, she was always experimenting and crafting throughout her younger years. She works mostly with the copper foil method making anything from large pieces to small sun catchers, sometimes intertwining her interest in jewelry as well. Joanna loves her abilities as a glass artist and hopes to continue to share Stained Glass with her community for years to come.
