Mayauel Ward was born and raised in Manhattan Beach, CA. In 1976 he took a glassblowing class at El Camino College and was hooked. After college Mayauel worked for a short time at Correia Art Glass and then worked for over 30 years at Abelman Art Glass. In 1988 Mayauel started making lampworked glass paperweights at home in his garage. Over the years he worked weekends at Abelman’s developing his own line of torchwork glass vases, paperweights, light sculptures and perfume bottles. In 2012 Mayauel went full-time with his own line of artwork in his own studio. His focus is on floral and aquatic scenes.
