Sunflower Gurgle Pot
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 the dinner conversation a challenge. Long stretches of awkward silences were compounded by the fact that French dinners that can last 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 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.
