Ceramic sculptor Chris Moench founded Axis of Hope: Prayer Wheels in response to a Bellingham, Washington pipeline explosion that destroyed a mile of salmon stream and killed three boys in 1999. Since then, Moench has created more than 500 prayer wheels for restoration, healing, and marking watershed events.
His prayer wheels grace healthcare centers, hospice, memorials, weddings and religious institutions from many traditions. He created prayer wheels for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and President Barack Obama. His wheels reflect the interdependence of all life and ask us to live with compassionate intention, as a prayer among billions on this prayer wheel, Earth.
