Tim Soluna was born in Carbondale, Ill., in 1985, where he developed an interest in the arts at an early age. He began working with molten glass at the age of 17 and fell in love with the unique medium — captivated by the material’s transformation from solid to liquid and the complex dance of the glassblowing process. After high school. Soluna attended Southern Illinois University where he pursued his interest in fine arts. In 2009, he received a scholarship to attend Pilchuck Glass School’s summer intensive learning from Tom Rowney, studying the creation of intricate glass pattern canes and their application in making delicate goblets. In 2010, he graduated from SIU with a BFA specializing in glass art. Since graduation, he has worked in glass studios in Illinois, Oregon and Florida.
