JON ALMEDA’S MINIATURE HAND THROWN POTTERY
Pottery is the most enduring of the human art work and there is no artist as skillful in the use of bare hands as a potter. Soft clay simply molds into icons under the soft touch of a potter.
Washington based artist, Jon Almeda takes utter perfection to a whole new zenith through his minute hand thrown ceramic figure with a length of 1”. The pottery’s tiny size does not stop the artist from making it quite a wonder with its delicate and fine details. The control to the figure was handled by a customized motorized curio wheel which inserted fine details.
I am a bit of an extremist. For many years I was throwing massive pieces, the bigger the better type mentality. While browsing a book store, I came across a book called “Creating Ceramic Miniatures” that really changed my whole outlook and approach. I went to the opposite end of the spectrum and began working in 1″ scale. Throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is a very meditative form of creation. 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.
