This Guy Creates Unbelievably Tiny, And Incredibly Detailed Pottery All By Hand

Tacoma, Washington artist Jon Almeda creates tiny versions of pottery with a high level of precision. He specializes in tiny hand thrown ceramics on a 1” scale. According to Almeda, he was inspired when he came across a book titled Creating Ceramic Miniatures.

Almeda said this changed his perspective entirely, “Throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is a very meditative form of creation.” Almeda’s smaller pieces mirror his larger pottery creations. He wouldn’t have achieved this level of precision without a custom designed motorized curio wheel.
