Nature In Glass: I Work With Fire To Create Organic Glass Sculptures

ADVERTISEMENT

My name is Simone Crestani and I’m a glass maker! I started blowing glass when I was 15 years old and I immediately became very fond of it.

I can say that I have two big passions so far in my life – glass and nature. Therefore, in my works I try to combine both of them – I give my sculptures natural shapes. The technique I use is called flameworking which means using a strong flame for melting and sculpting glass. Anyway, during the years of practice I have already developed my personal technique of glass blowing.

I am very lucky as I was able to turn my passion into a real profession!

Your art is amazing! Very unique and much respect for the subject matter. I would love to see more. Do you do any work with colored glass?

I love most of your work, but why'd you have to go and hang a bunny by its ears??? Otherwise they're all very beautiful and powerful ^u^
