Simone Crestani is an artist, a designer, and a glassblowing master. He had the privilege of working under the tutelage of master glassblower Massimo Lunardon and living close to Venice the capital of the glass world. On Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d’Art he reveals this about his work:
“I started to work with glass when I was very young. I was fifteen when I entered for the first time the Soffieria of master artisan Massimo Lunardon. There I was immediately fascinated by the incandescent glass. Shortly after, I started training as an apprentice blower and it was love at first sight. In 2010 I opened my own studio, the “Atelier Crestani”, where I still work at my creations.”
“I usually take inspiration from the natural world, reinventing its forms and translating them into my language and my aesthetic taste, trying to always keep that pure and elegant style that is my sign.”
“I’ve been working with the borosilicate glass in a more sculptural way compared to the traditional one, and now I can create bigger pieces but more detailed. I’m renown for this particular technique and often I have been asked to teach in prestigious academies and glass-making schools.”
