The gator coffee table growls for attention. The elephant end table? You'll never forget. And a heart even lights up.

Seminole Heights artist Larry Gagner forms glass blocks into unusual animal, deco and geometric garden sculptures and furniture. Some pieces include neon or fluorescent lighting and metal or aluminium trim. Prices range from $500 to $5,000. Commissioned pieces welcome.

See his collection at the Conversation Piece adjacent to Exotic Furniture, 7214 N Dale Mabry Highway. Call 249-0004 for hours.
