Just took the tour, it was amazing!!! I can't wait to come back again! This is worth checking out if your in Kokomo!
I am a glass artist and really learned a lot on the tour. I also bought quite a bit of glass while I had the chance. Their glass is beautiful and a LOT goes into making it the same way they did 128 yrs. ago. The factory is very old and full of safety hazards. Closed toe shoes are required for the tour but good soles are important too. It would be better to wear heavy tennis shoes.
Cindy, Dee, David, Tiffany and Justin are wonderful. Justin did a good job of being our tour guide. This factory not only makes sheet art glass, but sells stained glass and blown glass items that are custom made. They have very talented artists working here and we got to watch them. They have made glass for Tiffany, the Pope, Elton John, many churches and others. They specialize in Tiffany glass.
The factory is dirty and has broken glass all over the floors. I asked Justin if anyone ever sweeps the floor and he said "Occassionally." Glass is fragile and when stored it can break on its own, thus glass on the floor. Just be careful while touring.
We bought glass and they gave us gloves to wear, which really helped when handling the glass. Everyone was super nice and helpful.
Loved the tour
