Lee Schuette has created an unusual adaptation of a recognizable kitchen tool. He laminated layers of birch plywood together to form the large, striped cylinder and turned spheres of dark walnut for the handles. The familiar form of Rolling Pin recalls its domestic use and also presents a beautifully crafted piece of sculpture.
