Incredible Hand Thrown Miniature Pottery

By -

Making quality hand-thrown ceramics is an enviable and highly difficult skill, one that takes years to master. Imagine then how difficult it must be to create miniature hand-thrown ceramics, small enough to fit on the end of a pencil.

That’s exactly what miniature artisan Jon Almeda has done, with spectacular results. The pottery is created at a 1 inch scale that’s every bit as detailed as the full sized versions. Almeda creates beautiful vases, bowls and unbelievable tea pots that are glazed and fired, made using a custom curio wheel that gives the artist complete control over his creations.

There’s little point describing them any further, as you really have to see them to appreciate the skill and craftmanship required to create something this beautiful on this scale:
