Simone Crestani is a glass artist and designer. He came in touch with this material very young and he could catch all its secrets; following his passion in 2010 he opened his own ‘Atelier Crestani’. Introspective and self-thought artist, Simone, over the years, gathering all the lessons he learned and his own experiences was able to find his personal language and expressive code.
Appreciated worldwide for his special technique of flame working, he could combine design quality and craftsmanship ability creating exclusive sculptures and objets d’art.
Beside his hands-on activities he has been committed to teaching and research in prestigious art academies around the world.
“My work is a personal research on the beauty and poetry of the form, on the aesthetic balance that we can find in the natural elements and from which I get inspired.These, revised with my artistic language and fused to contemporary concepts, give birth to my artworks. I use glass to shape my thoughts.To do this I need trained and precise movements that arise from many years of experience and my deep commitment to the craft of glass making. First craftsman then artist, because only with full control of matter I can create my works exactly as I would like them to be.”
