Josh Poll is a self-taught artist with experience in all facets of glass art, mosaic, casting, furnace glassblowing, and flameworking. The first steps of Josh’s journey started in Joliet, Illinois at Joliet Junior College in 1995. It was here where he melted glass for the first time, and became hooked!

Starting out in his parent’s basement, he set up a small studio where he experimented with the new substance. He became his own mentor. Music was the catalyst – jazz, soul, rock & roll, world beat, all of it; without music there’s no flow, each song brings a different emotion.

His family’s history of study in Geology and Archeology has brought Josh to a new level of understanding of his medium, borosilicate glass. In August of 1998 Josh relocated to Tampa, Florida. In March of 2001, looking for new inspiration, he attended a workshop in Melbourne, Florida. Robert Mickelsen’s work had always intrigued him, so now was a chance to learn from the renowned artist. While attending, Josh met, among others, David Walker. David was Mickelsen’s studio assistant. In March of 2002 Josh attended another workshop of Mickelsen’s. This time it was a figurative class with a live model. This was the class that sent him over the edge, as it gave him a whole new outlook of all sculptural work. Very soon after, Josh and Dave combined forces to form Zen Glass Studio and Gallery.

Josh’s styles include, but are not limited to: Tiki, Botanical, African, Erotica, and Far East. Goblets, jewelry, vessels and figures are some of the pieces Josh incorporates into glass. He draws his inspiration from many different sources. Here are a sampling of the glass artists who have had an impact: William Morris, Luccio Bubacco, Milon Townsed, Lauren Stump, Paul Stankard, Joshua Simpson, Lino and Pino (Tagliapietra and Signoretto). Whether dug up and centuries old or recently conceived, Josh’s unique style and technique is ever expanding. He continues to run a full production studio, with classes, local and national festivals.

The business of being a professional artist has given Joshua a unique opportunity to reach and speak with thousands of people, from all walks of life, which is one of the most rewarding aspects of his work

This place is absolutely amazing! My sister and I had a great time. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout the whole process…. Not to mention hilarious! We laughed and shot one liners with Austin the whole time!! He was the coolest and was such a team player. He helped us create beautiful wine glasses, as well as awesome memories. (We made a bird!!) I would recommend this place to anyone!

Nekesha Dunlap

Highly reccomend this place. Our instructor Dave made it very fun and relaxed. He was very eager to help and answer all our question and gave us enough space to have fun and be silly while providing a safe environment.

Allona Sicotte

As a person who binge watched “Blown Away” in a day, this was a must. Austin was our instructor and he was amazing. Giving us little pointers and helping when needed. We each made a wine glass. We even had enough extra time to do a pendent. It was as awesome as I could have hoped for!! I would recommend anyone and everyone to this class.

Car Ander

This place is awesome. We did a great easy beginner project where we heated up some glass, added color to it, and shaped it how we wanted. The amazing staff there then turned our amorphous works of art into functional stemware. A very neat experience. I can’t recommend enough.

Rocky Salzer
Tatum Hagerman

Very interesting place, great classes

Dave Compton

My wife and I participated in a pendant workshop on October 15, 2016 with instructor, Katy. It was fun to learn how glass pendants are made and to try to make a few pendants. We were able to practice with combining different colors of glass and also trying to make different shapes. Katy was great as an instructor! I have a lot of respect for the process of glass making.

Mark Lytle
James Pelt

I spent a few minutes with Josh telling him my background and what I wanted to get from the class. He took me through a few ‘basics’ and I was off and running. Fantastic experience and I look forward to coming back the next time I’m in town.

Geof Kozel

I went for the wine glass workshop and had a great time. I was solo so I had Josh’s full attention. I created a glass that I will enjoy for many years to come. I also bought a beautiful necklace for my mom’s birthday.

Austin, who was teaching/showing my wife and I how to do everything was amazing. The gallery and store are amazing. The talent to make the things they make with glass is insane. My wife and I can’t wait to come back to try something else. Even our son asked if he could take a class with us next time. The experience was unforgettable.

It was an awesome experience. Being that it was my first time I was a little nervous. But luck was on my side because we had Austin helping us and explaining every step of the wonderful process. I was supper happy with my wine glass and so were my friends! Austin rocks !!! Give it a try …. you will not regret this amazing experience ❤️🍷

Such a great experience and would highly recommend! We did a wine glass making workshop and had a blast! Thought I’d be intimidated by working with a torch but Austin (one of the artists at the shop and the teacher for our workshop) made us feel super comfortable and made sure we were having fun the entire time! This is great activity for date night or even as a group event. We are most definitely going back! Thanks for the awesome time Austin!!!! 😁❤️

Zen Glass is the BEST! The workshops are really fun with friends or solo. The beginner 9 hour course is awesome if you want to be a hobbyist (of the 15-week for commercial glass artists). Josh, Dave, Austin & Alex are fantastic teachers and talented artists. Highly recommended, the best place to work hot glass!

Rachel King
