Bobbi's Ladder to Heaven

A group of Jacksonville calligraphers recently had a small tribute show for Bobbi Yoffee, who died about a year and a half ago from ovarian cancer...this show motivated me to finish a small sculptural piece that I had started after she died, but never completed (actually, it mostly existed in my head, until I actually had a deadline! My collage students can verify, all I had was the back spine -about 15"x4"- collaged with joss paper!). I never got a proper picture of it with good lighting; all I have to offer it this quick snap in my studio.


  1. i'm one of the lucky ones who has seen this piece in's absolutely stunning!! so much to see with the tiny little boxes of used nibs, and the gorgeous, gorgeous brush lettering! bobbi would have loved it! :)

  2. This looks beautiful Eliza. I wish I had seen it in person since I know I missing much of the wonderful detail in your work. I did see some of your work close up at an SFC workshop in L.A.

  3. Still my favorite - this is absolutely beautiful! :)
