Meet Jon Almeda, an artist, who crafts amazing jars and bowls that are covered with jewel-like glowing glazes. He creates them by throwing these pieces onto a pottery wheel and then firing them similar to other ceramicists. But if it is something that everyone else does, then why are we covering it?Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 11 Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 10 Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 9

His work is super tiny. The bottles, jugs and vases are so small that you can actually hold a number of them in your palm. Although they seem quite fragile, in fact they are strong enough to survive a kiln. In words of Almeda, “I am a bit of an extremist. For many years, I was throwing massive pieces, the bigger the better type mentality. But then he happened across a book on miniature ceramics, and was hooked. Throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is a very meditative form of creation.”Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 7 Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 8 Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 6 Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 5

All of his work has been created on a one-inch scale. He has also come up with a special wheel that he uses for throwing his tiny pots. A tiny pottery wheel if you will that measures in at only 2 inches of diameter. It is known as ‘Curio Wheel’. The knob is used for the adjustment of the wheel speed.Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 4 Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 2 Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing Tiny Pottery By Jon Almeda Is Amazing 3

It is a perfect tool for creating pottery anywhere and mostly Almeda creates tiny pots atop a larger piece of clay. This is followed by glazing of pots and decorations just like their bigger counterparts. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
