These staffs — made of olive wood sourced from old trees in Bethlehem, and anointed with oil I compounded based on the Old Testament Book of Exodus — pretty much conform to my own scale. Each is topped with a different form/symbol in bronze (a bird, a cage, a vessel to catch rain water), and each is meant to be ‘walked.’


I like to think about how objects impart sanctity to other objects or places; and about how we, in our personal intentions and efforts, have the ability to sanctify the things that we find in life.


Old wood comes from old trees: trees that have seen a great deal of strife in a land considered holy by so many. Perhaps their material witness bears traveling, and, I hope, imparts healing.
