About Us:

As siblings raised in the Los Angeles foothills, we spent many weekends in our father’s wood shop listening to Dire Straits and learning fine woodworking techniques. Our passions took us in different directions (fine art and engineering), but, ultimately, we found ourselves back in Los Angeles, looking to unplug and return to our craftsman roots. Spurred in equal parts by a recent trip to Japan, an existential crisis, and a shared love of food, we founded Water Margin Studios as a home goods company dedicated to design and functionality. We aim to make beautiful objects that have a use, a feel, and a purpose. Above all, we look to create pieces that reflect as much attention to function as they do to form. We sincerely hope our customers enjoy using our creations as much as we enjoy making them.
