On Etsy since 2009

We love to add a little artsy elegance to your everyday life!

Under the Glaze is the brain child of Marlina Koonce and Amber McKibbin, Indiana artisans who create unique ceramic pieces that are functional works of art. We have been fast friends since our freshman year at Herron School of Art and Design. Since graduation, we have been busy collaborating in the classroom and studio, often discussing opening up a business of our own. So we finally made our plans official and hope you enjoy our 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.

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.
