Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis

Veneto, Italy

Glassmith

Metamorphosis is a collaborative project between designer Camilla Brunelli and glass craftsman Simone Crestani that reflects on the relationship between culture and nature. Inspired by illustrations on 19th century encyclopedias and by the process with which an insect’s exoskeleton changes into a new one once the animal outgrows it, these objects integrate striking depictions of beetles into unique artifacts. These exquisitely handcrafted glass vases and bottles are both prized and functional.
