I just recovered a fun Yountville business called Yount Street Glass from reading “out & about” by Lois Riker in the Yountville Sun. You can read some of the front pages from the Yountville Sun from the link below or the link on my Home Page. If you want to read Lois’ column every week, and get the latest “out & about” the Town, you will need to get a subscription and can do so from this link, Yountville Sun Front Pages.
Here are a few examples of the artwork created by Kay Lafranconi & Cynthia Kapjian, see their bios below.
Kay is a Napa Valley native and graduate of UC Davis. After a successful career in finance, she came back to the valley and began to pursue life long interests. She worked for a number of non-profits before going back to school and starting Belly-Rub Small Animal Massage. Joining with her partner Cindy, they began making fused glass art together. After an unsuccessful attempt at purchasing a recycled glass necklace for their niece, they decided to put their kiln to work on their recycling bin. They approached their neighbors to donate their empty wine bottles and Yount Street Glass was born.
Cindy enjoys living and working in Yountville. A native of San Francisco, Cindy graduated from UC Irvine and then returned to San Francisco for Medical School at UC San Francisco. A Family Medicine Physician, she currently works at the California Veterans Home in Yountville. “After living in Napa Valley over twenty years it dawned on me that not only is there great wine here, but there are a lot of beautiful empty bottles! Breaking a lot of glass in the garage on Yount Street is an adventure, and when I cut myself, I can take care of myself…so it’s a good fit.”
