Veronica Castillo builds a Tree of Life.

Tips from Veronica:

• Veronica suggests using longfire clay or a clay with a little sand in it called raku.

• If your hands are dry, put a little water on your hands to avoid drying out the clay.

• Make sure there are no air bubbles in the clay so that it does not explode in the kiln.

• Tools you will need: wire tool, needle tool
