Create a Custom Color Palette to Match Your Home Decor

Looking for a Custom Mexican Tree of Life?

If you like our Trees of Life but can't find the right colors or shape we offer the ability to create your own Tree of Life and choose your color palette.  Please note, we do not make exact duplicates, the beauty of our Trees of Life is they are all one-of-a-kind originals. If you do see a Tree of Life you like we can use that tree as a base inspiration for your custom tree.  In addition, we ask our customers for broad requests to allow more freedom in the creative process. If you do provide us measurements, the final Tree of Life will be within 1" to 3"(larger or smaller)  depending on the piece.

Overview of the Process ( for details please email us at )

  1. Once you decide you would like to create your own custom Tree of Life, we ask you to email us the following:

    • Your full name​

    • Is your request for a decorative or memorial Tree of Life? For memorials, we do ask additional questions  in order to help us create elements to best represent your passed loved one.

    • The style you are looking for example: floral, Dia de los Muertos, monochromatic, terracotta, etc.

    • Your color palette (up to 7 colors)

    • Your top 3 favorite colors from your color palette

    • List of colors you do not like

    • Names or photos of Sablan Trees of Life you like, this gives us insight to your painting style and shape preferences.

    • Photos of the room and decor where your tree of life will be

  2. Once we receive your information, we send you a PayPal invoice for a $75 non-refundable deposit. This deposit starts the custom process.

  3. Your tree is hand sculpted and you are sent a photo of the wet clay piece for approval.

  4. Your tree of life will be fired in the kiln and then painted

  5. Once it's painted, we send you the final images and post your tree in our online-store for you to purchase. We will provide you a coupon code for your pre-paid $75 deposit to apply at checkout.

Approximate timeline 10 to 12 weeks depending on the demand.

There are many steps in creating a ceramic Tree of Life and it's important to understand the timeline and process. Sometimes crazy things happen in the kiln which are out of our control such as bending, explosions or breaks. We don't foresee this happening, but if something does happen during the firing process you will be refunded your $55 deposit.

  • 4 to 8 weeks to hand build your custom Tree of Life

  • 1.5 to 3 weeks for the clay to completely dry out. This is an important step because moisture left in the clay can cause the piece to explode in the kiln.

  • 1 to 2 weeks for firing

  • 1 to 2 weeks for painting

  • 1 to 2 days for clear coat

The final price will include the following:

  • Cost of the tree as agreed 

  • Shipping costs

  • Sales Tax ( is only applicable in CA ) 

  • $75 deposit amount is applied to your final order via a coupon code
