An Instrument of Pilgrimage

A small portable ‘device’ for the collection and burning of olive oil – a response to a brief exploring notions of pilgrimage.  Playing on ideas of cultural pilgrimage, it takes olive oil as being synonymous with refinement. 

By entwining memories of places with the collection of oils, later, burning becomes an act of reminiscence;  the evocative smell and glow providing comfort to a weary traveller.
