Suppose you live the right lives. Think about you are in a kingdom governed by someone who is a descendant of God, the creator of the heaven and the earth. The feudal system, the obligations to the family and the society would have been nothing more than a unavoidable need, as a breath is to life.
Add Shinto – wereby every living being has got the same dignity: that is human, animal or plant-. Then the Zen Philosophy – for which look at nature is seeing the cosmic becoming, that everybody is a part of it-. The result will be your idea of beauty is something which constantly and eternally involved itself; where imperfection forms an integral part, and the empty – understood as space which let them moving, changing, becoming- the essential condition.
That exactly are Simone Crestani’s glasses. I don’t know how but world in flux is running in his veins. Simone Crestani artworks are lights and sensitives, the thicknesses flimsy. Cups, glasses bonsai and pitcher have got the gentle fragility and the asymmetry of a water droplet carried by wind. To increase the visual effect, decors and shapes are inspired to nature elements.

And they can get that when they learn the most important lesson, people can’t possess nothing. Then seducing is open up to others and at the same time let them go. Iki is what lies in between, it remain guarded about opposites. But iki i also a crack in the normally, that this can write in two characters, the meaning of one is “breath”, the other “stylishness”.
And therefore at the end of this turn of phrase what we must do, in the present case, is bring in the etereal lightness of Simone Crestani creation’s alongside products of soil. On the matter Piercing Eyes and Studio Dimore Collection have acted an oil tasting by Apulia Excellentia.
The moral of the story is: beauty is at all time and everywhere. Elisabetta Guida
