Fabricated from metal, this spiral sculpture by Curtis Jeré rests on a stylish marble base and adds postmodern sensibility to the home art collection. Sculpted, thin rods of antiqued brass loop to create dramatic waves of industrial aesthetic that rest on black marble, textured by welded drippings along the top of each rod. Signed and dated by the artist on the side of the sculpture, as pictured.
About the Artist:
C. Jeré is a compound nom de plume of Jerry Fels and Curtis Freiler, two brother-in-laws. They were metalworking artists who focused on home accessories and wall sculptures. The works of C. Jeré were produced and marketed by Artisan House, an art production for the average consumer that was founded by the duo in 1963. Freiler was the chief of production and Fels was the chief of design. They employed a great number of minorities and handicapped people and at one point employed 300 people. They sold the company in 1972. Early C. Jeré works were produced in California, but continue to be made overseas since the company’s outsourcing in 2003. Freiler passed away in 2008, Fels in 2013 at 103 years old.
