CRE­ATE, IN­NO­VATE!

BUSI­NESS This & That Ce­ram­ics WHO Anita Steenkamp WHERE Krugers­dorp, Gaut­eng

HER WORK Anita cre­ates beau­ti­ful ce­ramic pieces from a lit­tle makeshift stu­dio in her garage. “I put my heart and soul into mak­ing each piece by hand, some­times work­ing right through the night. But I love it!” she says.

Anita used to be a stay-at-home mom but when her daugh­ter started school at the be­gin­ning of the year, she found that she was able to put more en­ergy into ful­fill­ing her dream of be­com­ing a ce­ramic artist. Af­ter post­ing pho­to­graphs of her first pieces on Face­book, or­ders came flood­ing in and she soon launched her web­site, thisandthatce­ram­ics.co.za.

“I’m in­spired to cre­ate pieces that I’d like to have in my own kitchen. When I serve some­thing, I want to serve it on some­thing beau­ti­ful or in­ter­est­ing – I be­lieve food tastes bet­ter that way!” says Anita.
