A few days ago, we were scanning through the artFido instagram feed when we came across a video of Jon Almeda throwing a teeny-tiny clay pot as the sun set in the background. We featured this work on our instagram page, and before you knew it, Jon’s amazing works were being thrown about all over the interwebs!
Although Jon originally started out making much larger pieces, these tiny hand thrown ceramics at 1” (2.54cm) scale are now his specialty:
“While browsing a book store, I came across a book called ‘Creating Ceramic Miniatures’ that really changed my whole outlook and approach,” Almeda writes. “Throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is a very meditative form of creation.”
Well we’re glad we found you Jon, and we wish you all the best with your teeny-tiny magical creations!
