Years ago, I attended my brother’s wedding in a small village in Southern France. Since there were no hotels in town, all guests were matched with French hosts. My hosts spoke no English and I spoke no French which made dinner conversation a challenge. Long streches of awkward silences were compounded by the fact that French dinners can last for 3-4 hours. There was, however, one saving grace…a fish shaped water pitcher that “gurgled.” I found myself drinking more water than wine so I could fill the silent room with “gurgling” and unite the table with smiles.
Inspired by the lighthearted affect of the “gurguling” sound, I returned home and began sculpting my own version. Ten years, two kids, 15 molds and on typhoon off the coast of China later, I can finally share the GurglePot with you. I’m confident it will create similar around your dinning table in years to come.
Pour, Listen, Enjoy!
