This is a beautiful handmade Vintage Native American design created by Cleo Teissedre of Tucson, AZ. It shows Pueblo buildings, red pepper ristra and turquoise feather, 22KT gold and black and turquoise vase. Cleo Teissedre tells a story through her artwork which gives more meaning to the tile art.

Blue bird feathers designs encompass the exterior of the black and gold pot. Blue Feather symbolizes happiness, high honor, power, wisdom, trust, strength, and freedom. Birds play a wide variety of roles in Native American culture and are revered as bringers of messages and symbols of change.

Three Mountain ranges also can stand for abundance at the mouth of the pot. The tile includes a string of red peppers ristra. Red Chili peppers use it for personal protection. Ristras are sometimes used for decoration and are said to bring good health and good luck. The pepper's red color was believed to symbolize the sun.
