A love affair with welding!


Joy Gibat

Born near Springfield, Ohio in the late 30s, I received my first formal training when I was ten.
I received a BA in Art/Art History after studying art in Ohio, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Moving to Norman, OK in the 60s, I did some graduate work in Sculpture at the University of Oklahoma.

Divorced, with four daughters, I began in the 70's, welding and working with various metals, trying to produce unique and interesting sculptures in 3D and low relief that I sold at art shows and galleries.

My work is in collections though out the world. I have won some prizes and was nominated to who's who in American Art.

The act of creating and making a piece is what brings me pleasure. I hope you enjoy my work half as much as I have in making it.

If your are visiting Norman, OK, call for a private showing at my Home/ Studio
