The interactive roller
This project was in collaboration with the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford. These objects were exhibited there for several months in 2019.
In the museum there was a small carved Victorian Butter roller, which was used by farmers to show the farms identity - as packaging did not articulate this in this time. This inspired me to create a roller that children could play with and be able to create their own unique pattern.
On the lathe I turned the cylindrical components out of sycamore. Each component was the same length but has a different pattern on it. The components are modular and join with a simply dowel joint; allowing the user to have complete control over how many and which components they desire to use.
