CURTIS JERE STYLE "BONSAI" SCULPTURE
Beginning in the late 1960's both artisans and larger companies began making an increasing amount of decorative objects from welded metals such as brass, aluminum, copper and steel.
This trend was not specific to a particular region. In places as diverse as Pennsylvania, Quebec and Paris artists, craftsmen and designers were experimenting with metal for objects for the home.
This chapter on the history of 20th century decorative arts deserves more attention and interest in Curtis Jere, Line Vautrin, Michel Boyer, Francois Monnet and Paul Evans is fueling both prices and scholarship.
Over the last few years 20th century design aficionados and tastemakers have embraced and pursued the metal sculptures of this era.
This “Bonsai” tree, with its retro Asian glamour, is fine example from the era of Curtis Jere’s heyday.
“Bonsai’s” intricate branches are fully adjustable and the entire sculpture has a subtle and shimmering patina.
Perfect on a console, as a centerpiece or decorative desk object.
