"We recently bought a new home and I was searching for the perfect chandelier for our dining room. I found Mantra Glass Art, and Jessica worked with me to create and customize the perfect light for our space. It is gorgeous! We have received so many compliments on it! Definitely recommend if you are looking for a beautiful custom piece!"

"My item came out better than I could have expected, it is a beautiful tribute to my beloved American bulldog, Capone. Being able to feel the weight in my hand is such a comfort and I love the security of knowing that at least the small portion of his ashes would be safe in case anything were to happen to my home. Jessica was wonderful to deal with and hi I’m so happy to have this beautiful piece of art to remember my best friend by."

Jessica Schimpf

Studio Owner and Lead Glass Blower

Jessica worked on the fabrication team that created work for famed artists: Seward Johnson, Kiki Smith and Jeff Koons and more.

Carolyn Nadeau


Carolyn first started coming to Mantra in 2019 after taking a series of lessons with Jessica.
She picked up glass blowing so fast that we realized she had to be a part of our glass community.

Carolyn has learned the art of fusing, torch-working and soft glass blowing. She has also volunteer taught with us at The Nevada Museum of Art.



Ryan Kurashewich


Ryan was first introduced to Mantra Glass Art in 2018 during one of our live open house events in Reno with his family. He signed up for classes soon after to learn soft glass and torch glass. He has excelled at both mediums very quickly.

Ryan is a skilled artisan that also loves to create his own unique work on torch (a different process from our soft glass pieces).
