'Pots in different spots' is the name of artist Jon Almeda's ongoing project, in which he creates miniature pottery collections in different parts of the world.

Working with a one-inch scale, Almeda makes tiny vases, bowls and other varying ceramic designs. The designs look like your average ceramic collection, featuring delicate details and subtle color pops -- only when a scalable item is placed next to them is their tiny stature revealed. The designs are all hand-thrown, calling for extreme patience and attention to detail. The pots featured can balance on the artist's fingertips and are about half the size of a match stick.

The artist argues that size does matter when creating his micro-designs, a statement that becomes apparent through the miniature pottery collection's undeniable and adorable impact that you just can't get from average sized pieces.
