How to care for your tree of life.
Vintage Mexican Tree of Life from my personal collection. Attributed to the Castillo family.
Because each tree is individually hand sculpted and hand painted there will always be slight imperfections which gives each tree a unique charm. To keep true to the folk art traditions of Arbols de la Vida, all Sablan Ceramic pieces are made from low fire clay and are fired at a low temperature. This means the clay particles are only partially fused together which makes the clay a little bit porous leaving your tree of life naturally prone to staining and water damage. To help with this, all pieces are covered with a clear coat for protection but underneath the clay is still porous which allows liquids to penetrate. We recommend to keep your tree of life indoors and away from moisture, water and direct sunlight (for fading). To care for your tree you can wipe it down with a slightly damp cloth. If you have any further questions, please send an email to and thank you for purchasing a Sablan Ceramic Tree of Life!
