Titled: When Shall the Voice of Liberty be Mute?
Height: 43cm approx x 33cm x 4cm
Handmade ceramic open platter with imprinted words / one off transfers / drawings and scraffito by artist Himarni Brownsword.
Made in response to the election campaign of 2015, it shows a lion perhaps representative of Great Britain draped in the Union Jack surrounded by multiple images of the laughing face in a Warhol like repetition of Nigel Farage in ceramic transfer to the centre. Line drawings of Boris Johnson and Farage are dotted on the upper outside rim of the platter while the question 'When Shall the Voice of Liberty be Mute?' are indented along the lower outer rim.
The platter is completely hand made.
The piece was made when Himarni was just 16. She is more recently from 2018 studying at the Courtauld Institute, London.
