“Blink” Inspiration: Curtis Jere

I was flicking through the latest edition of Living etc, day dreaming about living in one of these amazingly pristine homes, when I spotted a beautiful wall sculpture in the spread featuring the home of Shaun Clarkson and Paul Brewster, owners of lifestyle shop, Pitfield, in Hoxton.

The wall sculpture is a Curtis Jere. Jere was a collaboration between artists/ sculptors, Jerry Fels and Curtis Freiler, who started working together in the late 1950s, through the 1960s in to the late 1970s. Known best for their naturalistic yet stylized wall sculptures, but they also created stunning free standing pieces too. I have been coveting a Curtis Jere piece since first seeing their work in one of my favourite style movies, ‘The Lives of Others’. I have the trailer here for you, but it doesn’t show much of the stunning apartment interior that features a wonderful Jere wall sculpture.

Here’s some images of Curtis Jere’s work just to share the joy with you a bit more. I hope this is inspiring to you even if you’re not as much of a mid Century design nut as I am.
