C. Jere defined the mid-century modern bird genre—or you might say, created it entirely.
This piece, from 1969, was created not too long after artists Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels combined their talents to create the C. Jere name, for their company Artisan House, in 1963, with the goal of creating “gallery quality work for the masses”. They didn't only do birds, of course, but they did them well. This quintessential piece features an abstract bird taking flight off a hunk of unpolished marble. There are some chips to the base that are congruent with the look of the piece overall. Condition is quite good. Heavy, impressive, and one-of-a-kind (no two hunks of marble are the same, after all).
