Holly Reese McCreary is a Birmingham native and earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in sculpture from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Holly learned the ins and outs of foundry work and casting while interning with Sloss Metal Arts during the course of her art education. She met “Big Joe” there, and the two have been creating together ever since. She spent several summers as an associate instructor in the Summer Youth program at Sloss. She has maintained connections in the casting community and looks forward to each creative opportunity. As well as casting experience, Holly spent many years making concrete countertops for kitchens and baths as well as other custom, decorative, and functional concrete pieces.
