The french word for pomegranate is grenada, from which grenadine takes its name. A pepita is a pumpkin seed, the top of this vase resembles an opening pumpkin flowers. This we assume if the inspiration for the name.

Like many glass vases this comes to life when placed on a windowsill. When backlit the colours are accentuated.
