About Artisan House

Jerry Fels and Kurt Freiler’s shared passion for creative development and design became apparent soon after they met in the 1940s. Freiler, a German immigrant and manufacturing ace with a knack for reinventing the use of tools, and Fels, a New York-based artist, quickly became friends and, soon after, began taking their first steps to securing a successful business future together. Having found their talents a natural match, the pair collaborated and launched Artisan House in 1964. Very successful in their venture, the firm quickly became known for its collection of eclectic, decorative wall décor. More than 70 years later, the company is largely popular amongst vintage art dealers and collectors, has caught the attention of leading designers, like Michael Payne and Jonathan Adler, and offers its discerning clients an ever-evolving roster of more than 350 pieces.

Company Profile

 

C. Jeré byArtisan House®, designers and crafters of unique, fine-quality metal sculptures for wall, floor and tabletop, has attained an enviable position in the home and commercial decor marketplace. The firm has successfully closed the gap between pricey offerings from exclusive art galleries and mass-produced decorative pieces by creating original sculptures with unparalleled designs at affordable prices. The result infuses today's indoor and outdoor environments with dazzle and dimension.

 

C. Jeré byArtisan House wall sculptures elevate the look of any room or outdoor setting thanks to a comprehensive array of designs showcasing multi-colored, cool and warm tones; nature-themed pieces with earthly inspirations; and sculptures reminiscent of activities that relax, excite or inspire. Tabletop and freestanding floor pieces also make dynamic statements in the home or out-of-doors.

 

For more than four decades, C. Jeré byArtisan House's vibrant, versatile designs have been recognized as multi-dimensional "metalworks of art." In 1964, partners Jerry Fels and Kurt Freiler branched out into the specialized world of metal art. Previously, Fels operated Renoir of California -- a jewelry house that designed and produced collections of copper jewelry. It is a combination of Fels’ and Freiler’s names that make up the signature C. Jeré that marks every C. Jeré byArtisan House sculpture.

 

Over the decades, C. Jeré byArtisan House's products have evolved from smaller representational sculptures like trees, branches and small scenes to larger-scale artwork that is contemporary, trendy or traditional in style.

 

Stylish Metalworks for Multiple Environments

 

Today, C. Jeré byArtisan House offers its discerning clients an ever-evolving roster of more than 350 pieces. New metalworks designs are introduced twice annually at major markets. Created by master artists at the firm's C. Jeré Design Studio in Burbank, California, the artists' remarkable designs are then exactingly reproduced by a talented team of craftspeople at two overseas production studios. Wall sculptures and items especially crafted for long-lasting display in today's outdoor living spaces consistently rank among the company's top sellers.

 

Sculptures are handcrafted of rich metals including copper, bronze, brass, steel, aluminum and chrome. Each piece is hand finished with intriguing surface treatments, paints and patinas. For example, pieces may incorporate ground steel, brushed stainless steel, flame-treated copper or hammered brass -- or combine two or more metals like painted brass and steel with flame treated copper. Due to the abstract nature of most C. Jeré byArtisan House pieces, many can be hung upside down or at an angle, as well as used in multiples for a larger configuration or to create a bolder statement.

 

In 2006 C. Jeré byArtisan House relocated its headquarters from Los Angeles to a 40,000 square- foot facility in Burbank in 2006. The new location has an in-house photography studio and a 15,000 square-foot C. Jeré Design Studio for the firm's team of artists. This well-stocked studio features a state-of-the-art CAD design system, special ovens and a comprehensive finishing area.

 

Before new product designs debut each April and October, hundreds of sketched or proposed designs undergo an initial review. Then, prototypes are made and final pieces are selected by a panel of design authorities.

 

Many members of C. Jeré byArtisan House's finishing staff have worked with the company for more than 30 years and are highly skilled at collaborating with studio artists to help make their original designs come to life. Upon completion, every C. Jeré byArtisan House sculpture is copyrighted, signed and dated by the artist.
