David Philpot

Artist – Master Staff Maker, Carver, Mosaic & Collage Master


DSC06040Philpot was inspired to make staffs after seeing the movie The Ten Commandments, wherein Moses carried – and wielded – a tall staff.


In the 40+ years since, he has produced an amazing variety of staffs, with all manner of carvings and embellishments. Experts have long noted the totemic nature of these works, and the transcendent role of the staff as a symbol of power and authority in many cultures. David Philpot has established himself as a master in this realm.
