Ceramicist, Clay Sculptor, Illustrator & Painter
It's an honor and a privilege to work with the four elements of life: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. These elements give me the ability to mold, transform, and express the voices and the stories of all beings.
VERÓNICA CASTILLO: AWARD-WINNING ARTIST AND CLAY SCULPTOR
August 5, 2022
Although the Castillo family’s fame centered on their creations of “Arbol de la Vida,” Tree of Life sculptures, Veronica ventured into different topics and spaces. At age sixteen she took an interest in “Day of the Dead” skulls and masks. She also ventured into working with the black clay of the Oaxaca region. She favored feminist themes such as a “tree of life” dedicated to women mariachis and singers.
