Artist Makes Teeny-Tiny Hand-Thrown Pottery

Published 2 years ago

I wouldn’t be able to throw any clay, yet here Jon Almeda is throwing some tiny, tiny bowls. His creations come in a 1″ scale, amazingly small. Yet they still look like the big thing, no less graceful than their bigger clay brothers. And then you have to consider the fact that they’re small enough to be displayed on the side of pencil.

Jon Almeda wasn’t always enamored with petty pottery. For the longest time he worked by what he calls “the bigger the better type mentality”. One day, he found a book called “Creating Ceramic Miniatures” and changed his throwing life forever. He even uses a custom (tiny) throwing wheel!
