Jonathan Adler purchased the rights to reproduce a handful of the company's most successful designs, notably the "Raindrops" wall sculptures. While the aforementioned sculpture has become the wall equivalent of the Eames lounge chair (ubiquitous, knocked-off and cliched) Curtis Jere has a huge body of work. As you can see from this brief album there was quite a variety of sculptures. Not included here is the giant kitchen tools series, which includes whisks and can openers measuring over four feet tall. The aesthetics and moods of the sculptures run the gamut from elegant to whimsical or kitschy to glamorous. Vintage Jere is easily found on sites such as eBay and 1stdibs. Prices can be a low as $175 to well over $4,000. Similar metal wall sculptures by anonymous studios, such as the "Island" and the "Bronzed-branched Amaryllis" from my shop Caviar20 are described as "in the style of Jere" since Jere was both a pioneer and the vanguard of this decorative form. Alongside Raymor and Georges Briard, Curtis Jere is a prime example of a mid-century American design company that deserves more scholarship and formal documentation of their creative output.
