Here we have an important pair of matching MCM decorative art pieces by the great metalwork artist Curtis Jere. Curtis Jere was very popular in the 70’s and he continued to create through the 90’s. This piece is abstract in style and features a faux marble resin base pedestal atop which a spray of steel kinetic wires sit. It does have paper labels which verify it as authentic Curtis Jere and not in his manner or a repro. This pair is rather rare as our research has not unearthed any other example. Very much reminicent an likely inspired by the work of Harry Bertoia. Wires are flexible enough that air will move them in a kinetic fashion with even a slight breeze.
Overall, this set is beautiful throughout with no real damage aside from a few small chips to the base from handling, but nothing unexpected. Please see the pictures for a closer look. Dimensions: Overall: 30″h x 5″l x 5″w Base: 6″h x 5″l x 5″w 16 lb 12 oz (each)
