GurglePot™ Fish-Shaped Pitchers that “Gurgle”

Years ago, GurglePot™ creator Matt Ellison attended his brother's wedding in a small village in Southern France. Since there were no hotels in town, all the guests were hosted by local French families. Matt's hosts spoke no English and he spoke no French which made dinner conversation a challenge.

Years ago, GurglePot™ creator Matt Ellison attended his brother’s wedding in a small village in Southern France. Since there were no hotels in town, all the guests were hosted by local French families. Matt’s hosts spoke no English and he spoke no French which made 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.” Matt found himself drinking more water than wine so the silent room would be filled with the “gurgling” and unite the table with smiles.

Inspired by the lighthearted affect of the pleasant gurgling sound, Matt returned home and began sculpting his own version.  Now Matt ships these colorful pitchers from his Lake Tapps, Washington warehouse. Poggi Bonsi now carries a selection of these whimsical GurglePots™. Pour, listen and enjoy!
