About Us

A Glass Fantasy is a mother daughter stained glass company located in Reno, NV. Originally Vanessa Aramanda started the business with her husband Ralph in the mid 1980s and in that time her other businesses moved to the forefront while she raised her daughters. Now that they are grown she wants to get back into glass, but not knowing where to start with the changes in the market she brought on her daughter Amy, who she started teaching stained glass late last year, to help run the business.

From childhood to adulthood, through hard work and perseverance, she taught herself to become proficient in many mediums, including trompe-l’oeil painting, stained glass, and sandblasting.
