For Fort Scott resident Bobbi Kemna, art is more than a pastime, it’s a healing passion. Her artistic prowess with pottery is a skill she picked up later in life, but is one that has given her life new meaning.
“The clay keeps me centered. When I am out of sorts, edgy, foggy and unpleasant to be around, I say it’s time to play in the mud.”
Her “playing in the mud” has produced some phenomenal pieces and has earned her a coveted position as an Art is Ageless® award winner–an accomplishment Bobbi treasures.
“The biggest thrill of my clay lifetime was being chosen to show my winning piece in Topeka at the gala.”
Bobbi’s passion for pottery extends to passing along this skill to others. She’s looking forward to instructional opportunities at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village, where she can bring some of her previous teaching experiences to life.
“I’ve done some 4-H workshops and several students have won grand champion and have been invited to advance to the state level. That makes me proud.”
