Artist makes middling sculptures out of chips and peas. These were commissioned by the Potato Council in honor of Chip Week 2014, which I somehow missed. Again.

Actually, this lady will make any sculpture out of any food. Or non-food items. Or, whatever. Please, just give her something to do already.

The peas in question are mushy peas, which are — yes — peas that have been mushed. It’s a *little* (but not much) more complicated than that. You take marrowfat peas — big peas that have been allowed to dry in the field instead of being picked young in the pod — soak them overnight in water and baking soda, and cook them down to a paste with a pinch of salt and sugar.

Yeah, fuck it, mushed up peas. They aren’t bad. They don’t taste bad. They just taste…pointless.

Still, they make pretty good mortar in chip sculpture. I guess.
