         glass at the age of 15 at the Massimo’s Lunardon glass factory. After actory. 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 fi nally broke
         away from the traditional glass of Murano.
         In fact he works borosilicate glass with a special technique of flame
         working that he called Hollow Sculpture, 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 an 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 fi ne 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.
