Diverting her attention away from her signature Stick sculptures, artist Katie Ridley Murphy transferred her handicraft to botanical fruit. “I have a hard time throwing away fruits and vegetables in my fridge,” admits Murphy. “When they start to decompose, I think they look so pretty.” As a banana on her counter begins to rot, Murphy carves a similar decaying shape out of raw black or white porcelain imported from Barcelona. The fruit is then fired in the kiln, dipped in a clear glaze, and fired for a second time.
