Simone Crestani: Longhorn Decanter
The Longhorn Decanter is part of Simone Crestani's trophy bottles collection. At the top of each bottle is a trophy cap which reproduces the horns of a wild animal in minute detail, a silent and poetic ode to the inhabitants of the most unspoiled nature.
Simone Crestani is an artist, a designer, and a glassblowing master. He was born in Marostica, in the region of Venice, where he still lives and works. He started working with glass in 2000 as Massimo Lunardon’s apprentice, during which time he mastered different techniques of flameworking. Crestani is inspired by “the never-ending variety of the natural world, and how the shapes of animals and plants magically come to life, even in their tiniest details, in a celebration of lightness and transparency,” he says.
