The Makers

We are husband and wife team. “Margaret’s modern and sleek wooden charging stands, clocks, and objects are juxtaposed with Justin’s organic and earthly vases. A common love of walnut wood fuses the two very distinct lines of products into a well-rounded collection of goods pleasing those who love both the graphic modern and the natural.” – (Renegade Craft Fair) We believe in good craftsmanship combined with quality materials. The wood we use in our products are from sustainable forests and procured from a local family owned business.

 

Margaret has been a self-taught graphic designer for 13+ years, the pursuit of creating tangible products was very appealing. At that time, she was working for a sporting company and they were disposing scraps of excess baseball bat wood. She brought them home and was determined to make something functional out of it. The first creation was a maple wood iPhone stand, which was well received. After hours of the full time job, she would brainstorm on what products she’d like to make and hone her skills as a woodcrafter. Soon after, Margaret took a leap of faith to dedicate herself full time to MAGSZILLA. She’s never gone the conventional way of learning things through formal education or classes, everything was learned hands-on and by trial and error. She appreciates and loves being around good design!

 

Justin graduated from the Art Center College of Design with a bachelor’s degree in fine art photography. Currently he’s working full time as a photo retoucher. Like Margaret, he also yearned making tangible products. On his spare time, he helps out with the shop (and heavy lifting!) and handcrafts the exclusive line of Bjørn wood vases.
