Chinese craftsman goes viral on TikTok for unbelievably-tiny ceramics

A pottery craftsman from Jingdezhen, Eastern China, became a TikTok star after videos of his tiny ceramics went viral on the social media platform, as seen on Thursday.

Wang Wenhua, the pottery maker, is creating his tiny masterpieces at his workshop in the Chinese city renowned worldwide for its porcelain.

In Wang’s studio, centuries-old traditions meet modern days creativity, with his brand new approach to pottery. “At the beginning, I often failed, because it is too small,” said, adding: “I think my hands are too thick and too big.” The craftsman’s smallest piece is only two millimetres high and was completed in just five minutes.
