Floating Pedestals in Brass and Smoked Glass by Curtis Jere Signed

US$2,800per set

About

Two brass and smoked glass top pedestals by Curtis Jere for Artisan House. Each pedestal is slightly lifted off the ground by a recessed black wood base giving them a floating effect. Each pedestal is signed "Curtis Jere 1984". Very light wear to the brass. I tried to take photos of the minor abrasions but it is difficult with the reflections - if you would like a video or more pictures please ask. They are hard to see from a foot away but if you look right at them very close you can see sporadic minor wear. The glass tops display nicely with a few minor scratches (photographed - but hard to see; if more pictures are desired please just ask). One glass top has a nick from a bump on the rim (hard to see but photographed). Pedestals measure: Taller one: 36" tall x 12.5" square Shorter one: 28.25" tall x 12.5" square.

About the Designer

Curtis Jere

Though the name Curtis Jeré is familiar to many as the maker of ebullient and eccentric modern design from the 1960s and ‘70s, relatively few are aware that it is a pseudonym for the design team of Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels. Together, the two created some of the most striking and vivid furnishings and decorative objects of their era, from sculptures and dynamically framed mirrors, to lighting and wall decorations.New Yorkers Freiler and Fels had collaborated for two decades on small jewelry lines before launching a design company called Artisan House in 1964. They combined variants of their names to create an artful persona — sometimes shortened to C. Jeré; the "surname" is pronounced with a rising inflection: jhayr-EH — that stood behind large-scale decorative metalwork, marked by semi-abstract petal forms with burnt and brazed edges. Fels served as head of design, and Freiler, known for his keen handiwork, was the production chief. The pair’s eclectic metalwork has captivated decorative art collectors and interior designers ever since.The work of Curtis Jeré displays a sense of playfulness and curiosity, while drawing on inspirations and themes that include flowers, discs, geometric forms and animal figures. Freiler and Fels had a masterful ability to work with different materials, such as patinated brass and brilliant chrome.The price of a Curtis Jeré mirror, lamp, wall-mounted sculpture or tabletop sculpture can range from $400 to $12,000, depending on the size, the rarity of the piece, the intricacy of the metalwork and the materials used in its construction. Other factors like condition can affect the perceived value and, thus, the cost of works by Curtis Jeré. As you will see on 1stDibs, the imaginative powers of the designers of Curtis Jeré pieces were boundless, and their creations will add a dash of verve in any room.
