Joshua Solomon is an award winning glass artist. He was born in Oceanside, NY and received a BA in Studio Arts from Bard College in 2003. In 1999, while visiting Santa Barbara, CA, a serendipitous encounter with a gypsy led to his introduction to glassblowing. In 2001, concurrent with his studies at Bard, Joshua began an apprenticeship with glass artist Barry Entner in Rhinebeck, NY. Over the next six years he learned many non-traditional glass blowing and casting techniques.
In 2007, Joshua moved to Staunton, VA to further explore his own designs and work with glass artist Minh Martin. At Trinity Studios, Joshua had the opportunity to learn more about traditional glass blowing and explore a variety of styles and techniques.
With his move to Norfolk, VA, in June of 2011, Joshua has been focused mainly on commissions and one-of-a-kind works. In the fall of 2012 he joined the assistantship program at the Chrysler Museum’s glass studio. His association with the Chrysler Museum’s glass studio expands with each passing year; he is currently an instructor. His passion for art history, drawing, and the natural world deeply influence the evolution of his work.
