Description

This marvelous piece of Curtis Jere sculpture needs to be viewed in-the-round as from whatever direction it is viewed it takes on a completely different silhouette. Comprised of a main piece in the shape of a triangle made from 3/16-inch diameter iron rod which is intersected by a series of uniquely sized connecting circles made of flat brushed stainless steel. There is a small antenna-like piece protruding from one corner of the triangle which bobs and sways as the piece is turned in its cylinder-shaped metal base. These sculptures were made and marketed by Artisan House and we now know that Curtis Jere was not a single artist but was a compound nom-de-plume of artists Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels. Before founding Artisan House these two had built a costume jewelry business which sold under the names of Renoir and Matisse. Artisan House was sold and resold and remains in business today. The C. Jere sculptures and metal work were distributed by Raymor, a well-known name in Mid Century collectibles, and sold at Gump’s in San Francisco and other upscale retail establishments. Jerry Fels died 11/5/07 and Curtis Freiler, his brother-in-law passed 7/22/13 at 103; but, their legacy lives on in these fabulous sculptures. This one should be yours.
