I was surprised by some of the statements in this article...
I wasn't aware that Kokomo Glass had a retail store and an employee who does repairs...

The article starts:  "MASTER OF HER CRAFT: Stacia Giles from the OP Shop, the retail store at Kokomo Opalescent Glass, works on restoring one of the stained-glass windows at the Seiberling Mansion."

This article infers  that Kokomo Opalescent Glass had a studio that made stained glass windows. Is that true?

That seems to be the implication. But if you Google Stacia Giles, she is apparently CEO of American Glass Works Stained Glass Studio on Bishop Street, Kokomo, which is not the address of KOG.

KOG does build stained glass windows, and used to do a lot of it... However, they don't do quite what they used to.  They have staff that work the op shop, and some that build windows.  As far as restoration is concerned, I am not certain, but I know that they don't currently do large jobs.  I don't know this; but the worker might work in the op shop and restore windows as to seperate functions.  The idea that she is doing it as a associate of KOG may be implied...

If your that curious, email them, they have one of them thar websight thingies...
