Ward welcomes collectors to his studio in Manhattan Beach, California.
Telephone of email him before you go, because he is often away from
his studio exhibiting at shows around the USA. He recently returned
from a show in Florida and the photograph below depicts the exhibition
of his glass at one of these shows.. As you can see, he makes a
wide range of vases, bowls and lamps as well as paperweights.
specialises in making lampwork paperweights like the beautiful recent
example shown here, which he described as "probably the fullest
weight I've made to date. . ." It involved days of making flowers
and the black background "really helps make my weights pop". Mayauel
likes to push himself sometimes to see how much he can get into
one paperweight. That really shows in this paperweight.
is a native of California and his career includes studying glassblowing
at college and working with Correia Art Glass and Abelman Art Glass,
then setting up his own studio in 1988. Email him at MAYAUEL@aol.com
