Androniki & Loris

Androniki Kapodistria's BIO

Greetings! I’m Androniki, and I’d like to take you on a journey that spans continents, cultures, and artistic inspirations, all culminating in the creation of OTRO MAR Ceramic Creations.

Born in the vibrant city of Athens, Greece, my early life was marked by a series of relocations due to my father’s service as an army officer. These travels exposed me to diverse landscapes and cultures, setting the stage for a lifelong adventure in art.

In 1987, my family and I made our home in Algeria, where my father served as the “Military Attaché” in the Greek Embassy. It was during this time that I first encountered Arabic art, with a particular fascination for ceramics. I immersed myself in local workshops, observing skilled artists breathe life into their creations.

In 1991, my husband, Loris, and I embarked on an extensive journey through the Sub-Saharan Sahel region. From Niger to Benin, Burkina Faso to Ivory Coast, and from Guinea to Senegal, the natural beauty, rhythms, colors, and daily life of these places resembled an open-sky workshop. Every detail, every color, every shape, and every scent became part of a larger mosaic, evoking powerful emotions that would later influence my artistic creations.

After completing my B.A. in Political Science at the University of Athens, I relocated to Italy with Loris, who worked as a civil engineer. Our proximity to the art city of Faenza and my passion for creating with various materials ignited a profound interest in ceramic art. I devoted myself to learning and practicing this craft in the ceramic workshop of Angelica Drossaki, a renowned Greek ceramist residing in Forlì. My early works began to gain recognition, leading to participation in a group art exhibition in Cesena.

My journey continued as I returned to Athens, where my creative endeavors thrived. In 2004, Loris and I opened the Turquoise Gallery on the picturesque island of Mykonos, Greece. The island’s breathtaking natural beauty, the endless sea, and its unique atmosphere became a wellspring of inspiration for both of us, and this inspiration remains with us to this day.

As life took us to different corners of the world, from France to Libya, and then Nigeria, it was in 2014 that we embarked on a new and exciting project: the creation of OTRO MAR.

At OTRO MAR, I find joy in experimenting with glazes, constantly seeking new colors and combinations. The chosen glazes and their layering reflect my unyielding desire for change and my commitment to allowing instinct to guide my creative process.

I cherish light, adore the sea, revel in change, and celebrate the kaleidoscope of colors. These passions infuse every piece of art that emerges from OTRO MAR.
