Just after returning from my vacation in April, I learned that my hours were cut. Then a couple of months later I was laid off. Was depressed at first, now just feel like my life is on hold till I find another job.
So I've decided to blog through this experience to give me another creative outlet.
It's a lot of work looking for a job, especially in this economy. I've never seen a job market like this. There are jobs out there however there are so many people looking. I've had a few interviews but no offers. My goal is to send resumes every day and look in multiple sources. I usually work in the morning and evening. Then have a few free hours in the afternoon. Looks like it will be a long haul. I am lucky to have great supportive friends. I need to stop worrying and start using this time wisely.
Here are a couple of pictures of my latest pottery. On the top are high fired porcelain houses (painted with low fire underglazes).
And salt fired teapots. I was working on throwing closed forms and adding the spouts, handles and knobs.
