C. Jeré is a metalwork artist of wall sculptures and household accessories. C. Jeré works are made and marketed by Artisan House. 'Curtis Jeré' is a compound nom-de-plume of artists Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels. The two founders combined pieces of their own names to create the C. Jeré signature. Freiler was the production chief and Fels was head of design. Their goal was to produce "gallery-quality art for the masses". Kurt and Jerry sold Artisan House in 1972. Sold and resold, the company still produces metal sculptures including reintroductions of popular mid-century designs. Artisan House sculptures are no longer made in California. Production went overseas to China in 2003. C. Jeré works range from representational to highly abstract. Some of the older techniques, such as enameling, using resin, and the bronzes, haven't been used in decades. Read more about Curtis Jeré in our magazine.
