Lenore Vanderkooi is known for wheel-thrown stoneware functional and decorative wares which are high fired in a reduction atmosphere.  In the greenware stage, Vanderkooi occasional refines the surface by faceting or using wooden paddles to create surface texture. Finished works often feature earth-toned ash and matte glaze combinations. In some work, bamboo, reeds, or raffia are used to create legs, handles and other appendages for the fired vessel.
