Joan C. Kasprzak's pottery combines unique thrown and hand built components. Each piece is glazed with dynamic colors and designs, many of which are applied using an airbrish. Her innovative, contemporary designs reflect an Oriental influence. She is deeply influenced by the beauty of nature, the grandeur of architecture and the design motifs of Japanese Oribe Ware. The artist is an American Orchid Society judge and served as Master Gardender for Montgomery County Extension Service.

Ms. Kasprzak was the recipient of the "1998 Torpedo Factory Art Center Artist of the Year Award." Neal Benezra, Assistant Director of the Hirshhorn Museum, served as the Juror for this award which is sponsored by The Friends of the Torpedo Factory. As recipient of this award, Ms. Kasprzak had a solo exhibit of her art in the Target Gallery in the Torpedo Factory, May 12 to June 20, 1999. See Lead Photo.

Ms. Kasprzak's work has been published and reviewed in The Washington Post, Washington Citizane, The Frederick Post, The Charleston Post and Curier and Myrtle Beach Sun News. She has been in many juried shows and received numerous awards. In addition, her work is included in many private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia.

Pieces of wheel thrown/hand built art range from $45 - $1000. Prices of wall hangings range from $100 - $5000
