For glass artist and designer Simone Crestani, he is “an artisan first, before being an artist.”
Crestani was fortunate enough to learn glass working at a young age. In his years of study about this very complex technique, his thoughts were forged by the intricate rules of glass working – “ignited by the high melting temperatures, stemmed by the risk of breaking, withstanding the test of time, continuously searching for limits to overcome.”
As for the process, Crestani uses borosilicate glass working with the lampworking technique. He has acquired a unique style that allows him to produce large pieces while focusing on the smallest details at the same time. Each piece is made by hand and is not repeated twice. So his creations are very personal and special. Take a look below.
