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.
