After having twins in 2009, designer Katie Ridley Murphy quit her job as a media illustrator, and, in order to keep her mind sharp, she would go for long walks with her children in tow. Along the way, Murphy discovered sticks covered in mushrooms and ones bleached by the Atlanta sun. “During these excursions, I would think to myself about how I didn’t want to be just a stay-at-home mom,” explains Murphy. “I began to collect these sticks and wondered what I could do with them.” Fascinated by their form, she drew each stick’s delicate intricacies, and eventually sculpted their shapes from porcelain, taking an X-Acto knife and her grandmother’s old sewing needles to recreate the tiny details.
