Why choose

OutForm Studio?

OutForm Ceramics Studio is not merely a space for creative expression; it embodies the vision to inspire people, positively impact lives, and encourage a pursuit of individual lifestyles infused with art. Ceramics, as a medium, has a rich history and endless possibilities. Connections among individuals with shared passions are akin to different types and temperatures of clay—compatible yet distinct. Through OutForm, the goal is to bring together individuals who have a passion for life and creativity, building a community of art enthusiasts where everyone connects, sparking unexpected results. At its core, OutForm represents a manifestation of passion for life, dedication to creation, and a desire for a space where people can gather, share, and thrive.

Li Ting Leah Wang, the founder of OutForm Ceramics Studio, embarked on her artistic practice at Camosun College's Visual Arts program in 2016. It was during her exploration of contemporary art that she developed a profound interest in installation art. As an art student, Leah delved into various mediums, but it was the synthesis of ceramics and wood that became the focal point of her artistic practice.

In her works, Leah seeks to foster interaction between ceramics and the audience, exploring the inherent movement of ceramics and how it guides the viewer's perceptions. Drawing inspiration from structuralism and deconstructivism, she uses ceramics as a medium to explore systematic elements and block compositions.

After graduating from Emily Carr in 2021, Leah ventured into the realm of functional ware, continues integrating the idea into the form of daily use objects. Influenced by her father's dedication to interior design, Leah's approach to life and lifestyle was shaped during her formative years. The dream of establishing a community studio took root during her school days, driven by the belief that connections among individuals with shared passions are akin to different types and temperatures of clay—compatible yet distinct. Leah went to different studios to study and practice after graduation, and officially laid the groundwork for OutForm at the end of 2022.
