Artist of the moment…..Curtis Jere

 

Curtis Jere is the combined name of two artists renowned for their sculptures and wall hangings. One artist’s name was Curtis Freiler and the other was named Jerry Fels.

The company designed works that were produced by Artisan House. The goods are now produced out of China.

The company Artisan House was made to mass produce art quality items for the home in the early 1960s. The company was started by Freiler and Fels as they were brother in laws. The company was sold by the brothers in 1972. Since the company has been sold many times.

The works by C. Jere have become increasingly hot in the vintage collector niche.

What great designs on their wall hangings. I even prefer some of C. Jere’s work to another well known artists who worked in the same genre, Alexander Calder.

Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels have both passed away.

In this clip we take a brief look at some wall hangings by duo:
