Curtis Jere 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. The company was founded in 1963 by Fels and his brother-in-law Curtis (Kurt) Freiler. Freiler was the production chief and Fels was head of design. Their goal was to produce gallery-quality art for the masses. After launching in 1964 Jere sculptures were distributed by Raymor, a cutting edge studio in New York City, and retailed at Gump's in San Francisco and other high quality emporiums. Under Freiler's meticulous direction, the workers, a number of whom were minorities or handicapped, sheared, crimped, torched, and welded brass, copper, and other metals before coating them with luminous patinas.
