Its not often that miniatures hit the national stage, but this month, you can read about one of our IGMA Fellow members in the pages of O Magazine.
After starting out in large scale ceramics, Jon Almeda made the switch to miniatures about 15 years ago and has never looked back. Self taught, he has continued to push the boundaries of his craft, experimenting with shapes and glazes, making his own tools and even creating a miniature, and portable, pottery wheel. Check out his Instagram account where you can enjoy videos of Jon, having taken his portable wheel to a remote location, and watch him creating his stunning pots with a dramatic backdrop of sun, clouds and sea. I venture a guess that these wonderful videos have caught the eye of many event planners, for not only is he features in Oprah’s magazine, one of his videos shows Jon at a New York fashion show, throwing pots as models create fashionable tableaus in the room around him.
