As with ceramics above, this is an area that can range from single objects in a crafts or fine arts mode, to mass-produced pieces sold through commercial showrooms. Much of the work, particularly in smaller quantities, is done in wood, while the more commercial work is often produced in metal and plastic as well. This field requires a thorough knowledge of the materials being used, coupled with a strong three-dimensional ability.

Chris Webb | Prototype Specialist

Now a prototype specialist for Garmin International, Chris Webb graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1988 with a B.F.A. degree in sculpture. Like other students who came to KCAI, Webb drew a lot in high school. He was always attracted to drawing and painting and was labeled early on as an artist. After graduation, Webb spent 10 years designing and sculpting Christmas ornaments for Hallmark Cards, which is headquartered in Kansas City, Mo. His ornaments included the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile, the Batmobile and a series of firetrucks. From there, he moved on to Garmin International Inc., where he is a prototype specialist at the company’s headquarters in Olathe, Kan. His work entails building displays and models of GPS systems, making them look as realistic as possible.
