Request from the USA

I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelors in Fine Arts (emphasis in ceramics and painting), and I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I work full time as a Trader Joes Crew Member (grocery store), and play roller derby while selling my art on ETSY.

I have a strong work ethic because I was raised to believe knowledge is the product of hard work.

I am looking for a full time position in the ceramics field, I am flexible on the position. My skills include slip casting, decals, screen printing on clay, mold making, glaze making, sculpture, making clay, slab building, throwing, firing kilns, and teaching.

I have worked as a glaze maker and studio manager at Coyote Clay and Color for 2 years, and I have interned at 3 different studios.

My achievements include a scholarship to Penland School of Craft Summer Course on Wood Firing, Tibert scholarship for Art Honors of Del Norte High School, Scholarship to Arrowmont Craft school Figurative Symposium course. I included some of my pieces as well.

I am interested in how someone finds clay/ ceramics jobs in New Zealand? Any advice you can give me I would definitely appreciate.

My name is Laken Correa

My physical address is 230 Grove St, NE apt B Albuquerque, New Mexico
