Chantepleure

Chantepleure

To water by singing and crying: the gesture will be more attentive, concentrated, delicate and in direct contact with the water.

Chantepleure means sing and cry because the container is immersed in the water to fill by humming and empties crying. The Chantepleure seems to appear in France from the eleventh century. Often used as a watering can, this tool can control the flow of water.
Today, I bring this object in two other places than the garden: the bathroom and the kitchen.
I thus imagined a set of chantepleures for the bath with a sensory approach of the water to accompany the moment of immersion. With different water jets, so different pressures and sounds, the chantepleures are used - as by the children as by the adults - for the aquatic game and the aquatic relaxation.
I also imagined a set of kitchen chantepleures to serve water at the table. A bucket allows to rest water before distributing it ; we come to pick it with chantepleures adapted to the use reserved for water: to serve a glass to drink, to water the pan to cook...

The chantepleures allow other gestures, more aware of water that is used, even a water ritual. Also, in these two ways of using the chantepleure, water becomes precious, in small quantity, moving us a moment away from the tap.
