The article I chose to read from OnMilwaukee was titled, “Wood you believe it: MIAD's most talented furniture makers” by Laura Shea. This interested me because I am pursuing a furniture minor at MIAD, and was curious as to what information they had to report on.
The writing was engaging, and while I might be bias, as the subject, and makers are very familiar to me, all the writing was concise and interesting. Shea engages with former students, teachers, and lab techs about their individual practice and approach to furniture making.
There were some images of finished pieces, but I think having either more product images, or functioning links to the designers portfolios, because after the reading I found myself wanting to learn more about each person's body of work.
Overall, the article was well written, and covered a subject that desperately needs more attention, as the furniture program at MIAD is struggling compared to some others.
