Caldia Curve
 
Caldia Curve, conceived in the spring of 2014 by Copeland, and continues into 2016 in collaboration with Marmi e Graniti D’Italia (MGI), includes an expanding series of formal examinations in stone panel shaping.  From geometric plays in relief and perforation, Caldia Curve seeks ways to combine contemporary computer model based designs with the latest technologies in stone fabrication.

What would happen if a cube of stone were a seed...and germinated for a couple of weeks into a sprout?...Beeker embodies the possible animation of this concept.  Named after our dear and late parakeet, Beeker embodies the spirit of a creature resting before, or after flight, joining us in a moment of pause and appreciation of life as a continuum.
