Skinner is known for using a variety of raku techniques including the use of copper matte, various crackle glazes, crawly glazes, moon surface glazes, and the use of horsehair. He also uses human hair and emu feathers.

Influences on his work include the work of Don Reitz, Robin Hopper, and Steven Hill.
