Chris Mitton's latest work is an inspired piece of carving. The life-sized sculpture of a crisp packet and eight individual crisps is made entirely out of solid Carrara marble, but looks good enough to eat! This is part of Mitton's 'Revalue' series, where he takes the most unlikely of throwaway items and meticulously recreates them in marble monuments to the mundane.
