‘Tasty’ ceramic tile is in the home
Posted On July 23, 2021
“I love it,” says Brenda Keesmaat, who is a ceramic tile fitter.
“It makes my work so much more enjoyable and beautiful.”
Keesmaeat has been doing ceramics since her teenage years.
“I’ve been working in the ceramic industry for a very long time,” she says.
I was like, why not? “
Then I just started doing that all over again.
I was like, why not?
I love it.
The more I did it, the more I wanted to learn more about it.
It’s like a hobby, it’s something I do because I love this material.”
But it’s not all fun and games.
“A lot of people are allergic to ceramic, they just don’t like it,” Keesmsaat says.
Keesmasat also has a lot of allergies.
“My parents always used to give me a lot, and then one day they just threw out the ceramic and threw it away.
I started thinking, what can I do?
I don’t know what to do.
It was so hard.”
Kessmaeats family owns two homes.
The Keesmalas have a daughter and two sons.
The family is very involved in the industry.
“We’ve had to work really hard to be able to get these things done,” Kessmaat says of her children.
Kessmasat says the ceramic tile has made her family feel more secure.
“People always ask us, what are you doing with your children’s ceramic?” she says with a laugh.
“But, we’ve made them feel safe.”
The family has been working with the ceramic tiles in the past and says the family has a positive reaction.
“You can tell it’s ceramic because it’s very soft, it has a very soft texture,” Kesmasat adds.
“And it’s soft enough to take the impact of a hand.
It’s a hard piece of ceramic, Kessmans parents say. “
The way it’s being shaped makes it look like a piece of wood or a tile, and it looks like it’s coming from the inside of a ceramic dish.”
It’s a hard piece of ceramic, Kessmans parents say.
The tile is hard to clean and is susceptible to bacteria and fungus.
The ceramic tile will last for more than 100 years.
The new ceramic tiles have been installed in the Kessmaras’ two homes and in their two older houses.
Keeemaaats parents are hoping they can keep the old ceramic tile and keep the new ceramic tile for generations to come.
The city has also begun to install ceramic tile on older buildings in the city, Keesmanas family says.
The council has started a campaign called Keep The Ceramic Tile, which is encouraging residents to keep old ceramic tiles.
“This is a very important part of our community,” Keemasaat adds with a smile.
“If it doesn’t happen, we don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to be a part of the next generation.”
