Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

While my hands were still becoming familiar with the art of glass working, my thoughts were already putting down roots and binding me to this material forever.
Solid bases, branches that grow and seek the light: the first projects were still only inside my head and already had the form of a bonsai.
The bonsai is the symbol of my work; it is the art of giving form, with respect and full understanding of what I am taking care of.
The bonsai is a concentration of life, it overcomes the barrier of size and expresses strength and energy; it is a work of art that is never finished, in which nature continues to develop and evolve. I shape the material, but the end result has an identity of its own. I help it to grow and wait until it gives me an indication of the equilibrium that will allow it to express itself.
"With the bonsai I am always ready to start work again, to reach a new limit, to follow a new branch of thoughts."
It is my work that grows, slowly, with exertion and wisdom, and each day gives me life and emotions.

Artist Profile

Born: 1984

Hometown: Vicenza

Based in: Vicenza

Born in 1984 in Marostica, in the region of Venice, he started working glass at the age of 15 at the Massimo’s Lunardon glass factory. After an apprenticeship that lasted ten years, he opened his own studio, where he continues to work, dedicated to research and innovation. An introspective and self-taught artist, over the years he put together all the lessons learned and the experience gained and finally broke away from the traditional glass of Murano. In fact, he works borosilicate glass with a special technique of flameworking that he called Hollow Sculpture, the technique for which Crestani is appreciated worldwide.
This particular way to work allowed him to create large-scale objects in glass where also the details are curated. Inspired by the never-ending variety of the natural world, the shapes of animals and plants magically come to life, even in their tiniest details, in a celebration of lightness and transparency. His creativity combines the quality of the design and craftsmanship to the uniqueness of plastic and artistic production, giving birth to exclusive sculptural pieces.
Simone Crestani’s technique, together with his personal style and sophisticated poetics, allow him to create an interaction, where glass overcomes its purely material dimension and becomes a fine and studied artistic language, a pure, silent, and crystalline conceptual element.
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. Other than exhibiting in some of the most important initiative related to the glass and art-world, he is also regularly invited as visiting artist and instructor by prestigious art academies and glass schools all over the world.
