Simone Crestani presents Vanitas and Africa
Visionary artist and master glassblower Simone Crestani presents Vanitas and Africa for Artemest Virtual Craft Week, two new stunning contemporary tabletop accessories collections, fully handcrafted in borosilicate glass.
An artist and designer as well as a master glassblower, Simone Crestani brings a contemporary reinterpretation to an artisan tradition and an occupation whose most important center of production has been the area around Venice since ancient times. His flame worked borosilicate glass uses an innovative technique that Simone himself describes as hollow sculpting, that allows him to create large works that incorporate the smallest details. By pushing glass to its limits and becoming one with it, the artist continues his very personal expressive search for beauty and the poetics of form, in an infinite ode to nature’s spell, its fragility, and wonder.
For Artemest Virtual Crafts Week, Simone introduces two new stunning tabletop collections, fully handcrafted in mouth-blown glass.
