Artist list

Frank Tjepkema
Frank Tjepkema is a designer working in product, interior and graphic design. His pendant ‘Bling Bling’ for Chi Ha Paura...? launched in 2002 was constructed from several layers of overlapping logos.
He develops this idea further in his new collection ‘Clockwork Love’. Here the heart is the starting point for his timepieces and through the liberal use of symbolic references, the collection of pendants link up to such themes as fragility, passion, uncertainty and desire. There is literally and figuratively a ‘layerdness’ to the work.
The objects have been conceived as pendants, but then various sized ones: small, medium and large. They range from a piece of jewellery for a person to one for an interior space.
