Washington-based artist named Jon Almeda says size doesn’t matter, on the front page of his website you can see the phrase ” Size does matter” writes Tacoma, but Jon is perfectly happy to create tiny things. Jon creates tiny hand thrown ceramics at 1″ ( 2.54cm ), When he first started he worked on much bigger pieces, and he can recall the exact moment he made the switch to tiny art. ” While browsing a bookstore, I came across a book called ‘Creating Ceramic Miniatures’ that really changed my whole outlook and approach, throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is the very meditative form of creation ” All the pieces that Jon creates look exactly like the larger versions, they are often small enough to sit on top of a coin! To create these pieces a custom designed motorized curio wheel was built to achieve the level of precision necessary for such small size creations. More info: Website | Facebook | Instagram
