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

To say Zen Glass and it’s crew are great is a disservice to them. You can feel and see the passion they have for this as soon as you get there. 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.

Michael Reed
Michelle Johnson

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.

If you are itching for an adventure, look no further! I cannot say enough positive things about this experience.

He is very knowledgeable of his craft and helped us create exactly what we wanted. Already looking forward to our next trip

Kelly Dodsworth

Veteran Night hands down always an amazing and relaxing time. Learn something new everytime. Truly thankful for this opportunity.

Kanji Bean

Had a great time celebrating my other sister birthday! I highly recommend it and appreciate all of the team. Great gift shop for a unique gift.

Bo Bomar

The vibe you get from this place amazing. The people are all so welcoming. Great community and area.

From the moment I set foot in the hot shop I was treated like family and put at ease. Weirdie and Alex are 2 of the coolest human beings and made my wife and I feel like the glass was never unmanageable. My wife uses her wine glass all the time and I gave my pendant to my daughter who adores it.

The experience was so great in fact, I’ve signed up for beginner classes, bought my own gear and plan to keep coming back and doing this as a hobby.

Bring your kids, bring your significant others, bring your parents. Glass is fun to play with and it’s one of those things that’s easy to pick up and hard to put down! Zen Glass Studio is the place to make it happen. I am so glad I found them!

Greg V
