Looking for a way to keep the kids entertained at the dinner table? Want to amaze your bridge club? Wish you could come up with the perfect housewarming, hostess or wedding gift? We have just the thing…a Gurgle Pot. Guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face, even old Grumpy Uncle Ed! When we demonstrate a Gurgle Pot in The Cottage, our customers look on politely until they hear the “gurgle." Then the smiles break out with choruses of, “How does it do that?”
Here is creator Matt Ellison’s story:
"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 the dinner conversation a challenge. Long stretches 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 effect of the “gurgling” sound, I returned home and began sculpting my own version. Ten years, two kids, 15 molds and one typhoon off the coast of China later, I can finally share the GurglePot with you. I'm confident it will create similar smiles around your dining table in years to come."
The GurglePot is also available in a mini size - perfect for use as a creamer or budvase. It too makes a fun “gurgling” sound when you pour, which a customer better described as a “burp!”
“Pour, listen, enjoy.”
