David McLaughlin - Works From a Lifetime
David’s remaining furniture and glasswork (forty years of arts and crafts) continue to be on display.  It is no longer the complete show. Everything that has sold is, of course, gone. All of David’s work is utterly his own and a joy to experience.  His works in glass are forceful, eye-catching, and unique. The one-of-a-kind furniture pieces are startling with his quirky creativity. For more information contact David at: dmclaughlin1@sympatico.ca
