In September 2011,
in Querceta Italy, Copeland began carving a series of sculptures in Durato Travertine. The stone comes from the Rapolano Quarries
of Travertini Paradiso, near Siena, Italy. In the Spring and Summer of 2012, the Durato Travertine family was expanded.
"Penelope" and "Oliver," two young spirits emerge from within the travertine, plump
and filled with life. Moving to see the world that is new to them, "P" + "O" twist and turn. They bend
straight stone striations into fresh and interesting patterns of arcs and curves.
