Kay Lafranconi and Cindy Kapjian create glass jewelry and housewares from used wine bottles in their Yountville, CA studio. Their business grew out of desire to make socially conscious and beautiful glass work. They built a kiln but had trouble finding recycled glass they wanted to use as their base material. However, since they live and work wine country, they started gathering, cutting and firing bottles headed for the recycling bin. Friends and winery partners began supplying them with used bottles and Yount Street Glass was born.
