artist art work


Today theDepartment of Miniature Marvels is exploring the marvelously tiny pottery created by Washington-based ceramic artist Jon Almeda. He works on a 1″ scale, hand throwing ceramic bowls, vases, and pots. Even though they’re incredibly small, Almeda’s pottery is able to endure the same high temperatures of the glazing and firing process as regular-sized pots. We hope he uses a miniature kiln for them too.

Almeda uses a custom designed motorized curio wheel that affords him the precise control needed to execute minute hand-building techniques necessary for each object:

“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.”

To check out more of his exquisite ceramic creations visit Jon Almeda’s website or Instagram feed. He also teaches classes through the International Guild of Miniature Artisans.

صباح المُذكّرات


كتابة المُذكّرات شيء مهم في حياتي 🌾

قبل أيام عُدت لقراءة مُذَكَّراتي القديمة
أُحاول أن أتذكَّر شعوري وأنا أكتُب تلك المُذكرات
في بعضها أجد شيء أو إحساس أو ربما شعور مُختلف لكن لا أستطيع إعادته
وأحيانًا تتشابه !

و في النهاية شعرتُ بأنني مجموعة من النساء شاركن في كتابة مُذَكّرَاتهن معي 💐

هذا التصميم يُعبّر عن حالتي عندها ✨
