About the Artist

Artist Image Malcolm (Mal) McMurdo, was an accomplished stained glass artisan who brought his excellent combinations of color and texture selection to his glass artistry. Mal worked in large window hangings, small hangings, lamps and sun catchers.

Mal was a life member of the Calgary Rock and Lapidary Club having served in many positions on the club executive over the years. He achieved the Master status in the lapidary art, working in cabochons, opals, faceting and silver. He was a judge at many local club shows as well as Canadian shows. His keen eye and sense of detail was invaluable to all lapidary artisans in evaluating their work.
