Neptune Hot Glass is a small company owned and
operated by two dedicated artists who create solid glass sculptures with
Collette Fortin and Berry Davis us various
types of glass and precious metals to build hundreds of small aquatic parts,
assembled at 10000 F on the end of a solid steel rod, then dipped

oceanic life, Collette and Berry hope that their work reminds people of the
vanishing beauty beneath the waves.

to do what it does.
