Meant to Soar Designs

I make functional ceramics that tell a story, along with jewelry and mixed media. I use heirloom textures to make pieces that are special and custom designed for each customer, making their memories last forever. My work was inspired by my great grandmother and her handmade doiles, which I incorporate into my work.

I have partnered with my brother, Brett Rutledge to create a handmade nativity set made of clay and wood, and his handmade hardwood cutting boards. Each is handmade from a variety of hardwoods and one of a kind.

I love what art brings out of me and others. It has been such a source of healing for me. I believe we can experience healing from the arts. I spend my free time volunteering with children in foster care- helping them heal from trauma through the arts.
