Lamar has studied with the Lindquists and David Ellsworth in the early 1980s. He is currently the President of Southern Highland Handicrafts Guilds. Lamar's pieces have evolved from the vessel form to pieces referenced in sculpture and architecture. He uses a multi axis technique which he describes in the following: "The development and use of multiple axis techniques as a way of applying texture or sculpting asymmetrical forms on the lathe has allowed me to transcend the round object and to create a sense of image and movement that is suggestive of what I see while the object is being formed on the lathe. A multiple axis approach has also allowed me to draw from a wider range of influences and to develop a more personal imagery and narrative."
