Andrew Lamb lives and works in Edinburgh.
He studied Design and Applied Arts – Jewellery and Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art at BA level followed by an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art, London.
The techniques Lamb has developed focus primarily on methods of working in wire to make one off pieces of jewellery in precious metal. His recent work is inspired by lenticular imagery and involves research into ways of creating visual movement within the surface of pieces as they tilt when worn.
His work is owned by numerous collections including the Crafts Council, London, National Museums of Scotland, Edinburgh and Galerie Marzee Collection, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Recent exhibitions include ‘Scottish Gold’ The Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow (2014), ‘Under the Lens’, Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh (2013), ‘Goldsmiths’ Fair’ Goldsmiths Hall, London (2013) and a group show at ‘Gallery Si’ Kobe, Japan (2013). Lamb was awarded the Arts Foundation Fellowship Award for Jewellery in 2010 and recently in 2014 has received Gold and Silver awards from The Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council. He currently teaches part time on the Silversmithing and Jewellery BA course at Glasgow School of Art.
