Cuttle is the new creative adventure of husband and wife team Marcus Foley and Dore Stockhausen. Together they have been making their individual fine jewellery for over 30 years, working from their studio gallery, oneofftwo in far East Gippsland, Victoria.
Some years ago Dore picked up some paintbrushes leading her to now be a full-time painter. But the allure of jewellery never left her completely and everyone knows how boring it is to watch paint dry, so whilst waiting she started tinkering with new and recycled materials. Beer caps and stuff. And playing around with lots of colour. Fresh art to wear quickly emerged, the pieces quite different from her previous precious metal and enamel jewellery. More messing about with ideas and materials lead Dore to print selected details from her abstract acrylic paintings onto aluminium shapes to be worn as earrings, suggesting a quirky play on the old saying, ‘everyone is an artist’ – now everyone is an art gallery.
Not before long the collections grew, new ideas sprouted and were realised and now the two of them are having a ball creating an alternative universe of colour for you to wear.
