An artist spent 120 hours crafting celebrity heads including Elton John, Ed Sheeran and Harry Kane from sushi.

Michelle Wibowo, from Haywards Heath, used traditional sushi elements like rice, smoked salmon and pickled ginger to celebrate International Sushi Day.

Each sushi head measured 18cm tall and 10cm wide, about the size of a grapefruit.

The series featured comically named pieces including singer-songwriter 'Eelton John', Euros star 'Bukayo Saké', and This Morning hosts 'Alison Salmond' and 'Dermot Roe’Leary'.

Michelle, 45, who is an award-winning food artist, said: “I’m used to creating sculptures from unconventional materials, but working with sushi ingredients was a whole other kettle of fish.

“It was really fascinating to see how many ingredients there are for making sushi and how these can be used to create intricate details for the face and hair.

“I hope people find the portraits as hilarious as I do and maybe even feel inspired to have a go themselves to mix things up in the kitchen.

"Remember, all art is subjective.”

Ms Wibowo created the sculptures with the help of Yutaka, a Japanese food brand which provided the ingredients.

Ken Furukawa, CEO of Tazaki Foods, a leading Japanese food importer and developer that owns the Yutaka brand, said: “We wanted to create an exhibition that celebrates the diversity and creativity of Japanese cuisine, and inspires you to be adventurous at home in the kitchen.

“Sushi has become somewhat of a national dish here in the UK, so it felt right that we honoured this special relationship by recreating some of Britain’s most iconic faces out of Yutaka’s own sushi-making ingredients."
