This web site has been set up and is dedicated to memorialize as well as to celebrate the accomplishments of Sofia T. Gobena, the late daughter of Temesgien and Abebetch B. Gobena and the sister of Lydia and Gejaa. Sofia's untimely departure from this world was a great loss to humanity. Yet, she still occupies a corner of this world as well as a corner of our heart because of her unique distinguished artwork in clay, glass, metal, and twigs.
Sofia was a budding artist when she passed on of a cardiac arrest at the tender age of 38 in Madison, Wisconsin in June 2003. The world community is graciously invited to marvel at her work presented photographically at this website. Any contributions that you may make to her foundation will help future Ethiopian artists particularly those in the field of ceramics.
