Simone Crestani Live-Streamed Studio Demonstration (July 18, 2018)

Watch as Simone Crestani demonstrates hollow sculpting at the torch. See the final object starting at 1:00:00. An introspective and self-taught artist, Crestani has put together all of the lessons he’s learned and the experience he’s gained, to break away from the traditional glassmaking of Murano. In fact, Crestani now works borosilicate glass with a special technique of flameworking that he calls “Hollow Sculpture.”Crestani is appreciated worldwide for his development and use of this technique, which allows him to create large-scale objects in glass with fine details.

Take a look into a class at The Studio and watch as internationally renowned faculty demonstrate for their classes ranging from furnace sculpting to flameworking to any other variety of glassblowing techniques.
