According to Almeda,
“While browsing a book store, I came across a book called ‘Creating Ceramic Miniatures,’ which really changed my whole outlook and approach. Throwing small really allows me to focus on the shape and form of a piece. It is a very meditative form of creation.”
The miniature clay art exactly resembles their larger versions; however these pint-sized crockery pieces are can even sit easily on a coin or matchbox. These artistic clay designs show how artistry mixed with an ordinary task can lead to awe-inspiring dexterity.
