Master of the miniature, Jon Almeda makes incredibly ceramic tiny pottery by hand. “Size does matter,” writes Tacoma, Washington artist Jon Almeda on his pottery website. Tiny hand thrown ceramics at 1” (2.54cm) scale are now Almeda’s specialty, despite starting his career with much bigger pieces. He describes the critical moment online: “While browsing a book store, I came across a book called ‘Creating Ceramic Miniatures‘ that really changed my whole outlook and approach,” Almeda writes.  I enjoy the process of making small vases and bowls that without any scale or context look exactly like their larger counterpart in detail and proportion. Throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is a very meditative form of creation.”
