Who is Jon Almeda?
He is a very famous ceramic artist who creates miniature sized pottery. Some examples of the items he makes are pots, bowls, and vases. Each have very intricate detail.
"Size does matter" writes jon Almenda on his pottery website.
When first starting his career he did start off with normal size pieces. Tiny hand thrown ceramics at 1” scale are now Almeda’s 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.”

Almeda’s pieces look exactly like their larger versions and are small enough to sit on top of a matchbook or pencil
A custom designed motorized wheel is needed to achieve the level of precision necessary for such small scale ceramics.
Not only can Jon create these miniature pieces, but he can also glaze them!
Jon Almeda began throwing massive pieces and completely went on the opposite end of the spectrum. I found his work very interesting and cute and that is why I chose him.
