About the Owners
Under the Glaze is the brainchild of Marlina Koonce and Amber McKibbin, Indiana artisans who create unique ceramic pieces that are works of art that are meant to be enjoyed at home apart of your everyday routine. They have been fast friends since their freshman year at Herron School of Art and Design. Since graduation, these artists have been busy collaborating in the classroom and studio, often discussing opening up a business of their own. So they finally made their plans official in late 2014/early 2015. They hope you enjoy their special creations.
Amber is greatly influenced by rich textiles, ornate patterns and henna designs in her work. By carving and using a slip trailer, she creates beautiful three-dimensional designs on her work, accented by underglaze painting and various glazes.
Marlina is also influenced by textiles and attributes much of her inspiration to her grandmother, a retired clothing designer and seamstress. She creates her work by rolling fabric and lace in her clay resulting in gorgeous texture. Marlina is also a lover of buttons and will often use them as accents on her piece.
