Who we are

Current Projects is a Milwaukee-based design studio run by artists Brent Budsberg and Shana McCaw. Along with our team of craftspeople, we collaborate with museums, artists, filmmakers, and individual clients to execute unique and challenging projects. We enjoy challenging convention and pushing the limits of our own abilities and resources, mingling historic research and meticulous craft with contemporary design.


Inspired and informed by these collaborative projects, our furniture and product designs represent a space where we can bring ideas and disciplines together and create objects that are playful or contemplative; conceptual or utilitarian. We take care and pride in each piece that we create and hope that they will bring joy and usefulness to you home.
