Simone Crestani is an Italian glass artist and designer who learned about glass working at a young age. He describes himself as an “artisan first, before being an artist.”
While studying 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 Crestani, the natural forms are examples of balance and imperfect elegance. He recreated these forms through art, combining them with contemporary contents and breathing new life to an idea that is expressed in his works.
“Glass is the perfect material to sum up these contrasts. In my works, I love to see coexistence between fragile form and concrete details, hard contours and harmony of elegance.”
