Simone Crestani: Guest Artist Demonstration

Amphitheater Hot Shop
July 26, 2018 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Simone Crestani: Guest Artist Demonstration

See guest artist Simone Crestani during a live, narrated demonstration in the Amphitheater Hot Shop on July 26 from 6 to 8 pm.

Crestani is regarded as a young luminary in the world of glassmaking. He is 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 a celebration of lightness and transparency. Crestani’s creativity combines the quality of the design and craftsmanship to the uniqueness of plastic and artistic production, giving birth to exclusive sculptural pieces.

These demos are included in the cost of admission (kids and teens 17 and under are free).

Can't visit the Museum? Watch the live stream! Each demonstration will be added to our YouTube channel. See the full listing of past live-streamed demonstrations, and check back for new videos soon.
