Drawing inspiration from childlike landscapes, primitive markings and folk drawings, Lesley McInally creates dreamlike places we can all identify with from childhood memories. Each Yunomi tells its own story of “wee” islands surrounded by wind, rain, sky and sea.
Lesley throws each porcelain yunomi on the potters wheel and the base is hand carved. Many layers of hand coloured porcelain slips are then applied with various textured brushes creating beautiful tactile surfaces, underglaze washes are also applied and sanded back to add further rich zones of colour and depth. A rich glossy glaze completes the piece. Each Yunomi is its own little story which triggers nostalgia and an innocent sentimental journey.
