Billy Hiebert received his MFA for sculpture in 1965 from CCAC, now CCA. After a few years of sculpting with metal, carving marble, and teaching sculpture and design, he was attracted to industrial processes involving molding and casting. This soon led to a full-time business that offered model making, molding and casting to both artists and industrial clients. His exposure to new methods and materials soon led to a different direction in his sculpture. Billy left behind welded steel and carved marble and embraced a world of molding and casting. He worked with molding and casting in his art for many years until recently returning to his love of carving stone.
