Lenore Asbury was born on April 7, 1866 in Cincinnati Ohio. Like many Rookwood artists, she attended the Cincinnati Art Academy. She worked at Rookwood Pottery for many years, from 1894 until 1931, although she returned occasionally to decorate pieces. She worked in a wide range of glazes including Iris and Vellum. Lenore Asbury passed away on September 1, 1933, just two years after leaving Rookwood, and she is buried in the Spring Grove Cemetery. Collector interest in her pieces is considered to be above average.
