This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for modernist painting-inspired ceramic vases, pitchers and jars, which he often groups in precarious arrangements that reference still lifes in painting, Andrew Lord has a reputation for de-stabilizing viewers with his unorthodox methods.  Of his arrangements, a reviewer wrote that his pieces "might have emerged from a nightmare.  They seem to sway and tremble as they rise higher and higher.  . . .the artist groups them into sullen families on low platforms, or sets them in discordant twos or threes on high, broad pedestals so that their unexpected, largish size can seem even more unsettling at eye level." (Koplos)

His ceramics are usually expressionistic with shape distortions, and rough surfaces with numerous crevices that have pooled glaze, and are often oversized, with some of them several feet in height.  With his glazes Lord achieves colors that range from monochromatic to light yellow, turquoise, to black.  He builds the basic shapes by the traditional coil method.  Some of his pieces suggest an intimate relationship with the artist as he makes components by pressing them against his body parts.  For instance, he may leave hand prints or create a texturing affect by using his teeth to bite into the clay.

In his early exhibitions, he worked vases based on light and shadow affects of Cubism. 

Andrew Lord, born in England, studied ceramics at the Central School of Art in London and at the Delft Pottery Factory in Holland.  In 1981, he first began to attract attention in New York City because of his aesthetic exploration of the relationship between pottery, painting and sculpture.
