In the mid 1880's a huge pocket of natural gas was discovered in Kokomo. The City of Kokomo offered free gas to any business who would locate here and bring jobs.
The gas was gone inside of ten years, and now, we are the last surviving Gas Boom business, and the oldest manufacturer of opalescent glass in the world.
Kokomo Opalescent Glass is proud to present the KOG Hot Glass Studio. Established in 1998, a division of Kokomo Opalescent Glass Co., the purpose of the Hot Glass Studio is to produce a unique range of quality hand blown and hand cast glass using the world famous Kokomo Opalescent glass.
The Hot Glass Studio offers one of a kind and limited edition functional and sculptural glass objects, rondels, and dalles designed and created by artists Jon Wolfe and Michael Amis. Wolfe and Amis are both independent studio glass artists who have exhibited their art internationally.
