Curtis Jeré was the shared pseudonym of two artists, Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels, who used enamel, brass, copper, and steel to create decorative wall sculptures. Fels and Freiler were brothers-in-law who began collaborating in 1963, sharing an interest in what they described as “gallery-quality art for the masses.” To manufacture their sculptures, Curtis Jeré formed the company Artisan House. At its height, Artisan House employed 300 workers. Fels and Freiler sold Artisan House in 1972, and Curt Freiler died on July 22, 2013 in Los Angeles, CA, where Fels currently resides.

This fantastic Curtis Jere wall sculpture was created in 1994 which was after the company he owned with his brother-in-law, Curtis Feiler, was sold so this is a personal creation of his. Constructed of metal and painted beige and brown over a red background the sculpture shows 2 rows of birdhouses with 3 hand-painted birds. The birdhouses have a mix of closed metal fronts or open metalwork. It's a beautiful piece that can easily fit into multiple different styles. Measures18 1/2" high by 43" wide by 5" deep. There are 2 closed loopholes on the back for easy hanging. Excellent vintage condition with no observable damage.
