Simone Crestani

Simone Crestani (b. 1984 in Marostica)

Simone Crestani attributes his passion for glass to what he describes as the privilege of growing up near the capital of the glass world: Venice. After innumerable visits to the famous glassworks of Venice and having experienced Murano’s renowned glass creations as part of his upbringing, Crestani entered the tradition himself in 2000 under the tutelage of master glassblower Massimo Lunardon.

As an apprentice in Lunardon’s workshop, Crestani received a strong foundation in the techniques of glass manipulation. He spent years experimenting and researching new techniques with an emphasis on flame-working. As Crestani’s confidence in his skills grew, so did his passion. Glass, unmatched in it pairing of elegance and ductility, became Crestani’s mode of expression.

In both his functional and sculptural work, Crestani’s aesthetic tends toward time-honored artistic values: balance, elegance, and grace, this despite the fact that his creations are completely novel and unlike anything in the glass world to date.

In both the plastic arts and in the world of Italian design, Crestani is regarded as a young luminary with a compelling and diverse body of work. He is represented by galleries in Paris, Milan and New York.
