Medium Rectangle Ceramic House 4 Rachel Julca
About Me and my work
Hi my name is Rachel Julca. I create mixed media street scene pictures, brooches, decorations and design clothing. I take inspiration from my surroundings in Ireland. I first started my business in 2014 after I first designed my original design at a cross community course I attended for women in business. For my final project i wanted to design an image I could use on a table which displayed the jewellery I made.
I wanted to design something uniquely me and thought the best place to start would be my own home. I took pictures of the things I LOVE and used them as inspiration to make my design. People loved the design I did on the cloth and I soon realised that it was gaining more attention than the jewellery! I decided to make some products with the design on and for about 8 months at the Fine & Dandy Fair in Belfast watched and listened and evolved my products accordingly. Soon the ceramic pictures I had made were getting all the attention and thanks to encouragement from my friend Trevor Woods from Mount Ida Pottery I began to refine the idea.
