Jon Almeda’s ceramic creations look pretty ordinary when you see them photographed on their own, but they’re actually so small that your mind will be blown once you see them compared with other everyday objects.
This Hawaiin artist specializes in the creation of ceramic miniatures, but that wasn’t always the case. He abandoned “bigger is better” mentality after reading a book on this subject matter, and decided to give it a shot.
His outlook on art completely shifted, and he quickly discovered that the creation of tiny pieces requires even more effort. Attention to detail is essential, and he perfected it by testing different clay bodies, making his own tools and trying new techniques.
Almeda has been creating miniature ceramic pieces for almost two decades, but the rise of social media helped him get the word out. His Instagram page currently has 283.000 followers, who are constantly impressed by the fact his tiny creations look just like their large counterparts until you see them side by side with other everyday objects.
