Will Cotton, "The Pleasure Principle 1" (2014), Cast pigmented handmade paper, 27 x 28 x 27 inches
Rachel Gladfelter in Hand Papermaking Magazine

An article written by Pace Prints director Rachel Gladfelter is featured in the Summer 2015 issue of Hand Papermaking. Will Cotton: Pastry in Paper Pulp chronicles the process of building Cotton's cast, pigmented handmade paper works at Pace Paper, as well as his preference for the medium for its material similarity to the baked goods he depicts.

An excerpt from the article reads, "It’s quite striking how hard it is to resist touching Will Cotton’s cake sculptures. The thick icing, the finger smears, the sheer gravity-defying spectacle of cake-on-cake cries out to be tested. Of course the perfectly fluffy exterior of the sculptures’ 'icing' is not sugar and butter, but rather calcium carbonate and paper pulp. They are such flawless facsimiles that even the most casual viewer ends up wondering how they were made."
