Certified Massage Therapist and Artist, Evan Morganstern, conceived, developed, and patented element’s design after years of exploring various tools in his practice. By merging the principles of stone therapy, hand held massagers, and the aesthetics of a healing environment; he created a simple, versatile, and dynamic device.
A Note From the Designer.
My creative journey began while working as a massage therapist in Southern California. I met a local glass blower named Josiah and asked him if he had ever made a massage tool out of glass? He said “sort of.” With my background in art as well as massage, his response piqued my curiosity and into the world of boro (borosilicate glass) I went…
Josiah and I met up in his school bus that was converted into a glass studio and I offered him the classic wooden “knobble” as a preliminary form to replicate. That night, a beautiful prototype was created. I went home, studied the properties of boro and thought to myself… ”why hasn’t anyone done this yet? I am going to make a massager that will not end up in someone’s drawer.”
Josiah recommended that I keep it a boutique item, but I saw the product in a much bigger light.
I went to a number of glass workers in the area seeking local production, and ended up learning a few tricks on the torch. No one could make them consistently so, I decided to make them myself.
It took me two years and several hand made molds to shape element into the distinct form you feel today. I am honored to now be able to offer this perfected and patented product to the world. Bless….
