These are Chinese Quinces which have a waxy coating when ripe and a wonderful perfume. The pomegranate is not a common fruit in this area of New Zealand and many people ask what it is. Mine are usually quite dry inside and not very usable but the birds love them when they split open a little later in the year.

Drinking some sake from one of my sake cups the other night I noticed how lovely the colours were inside the bowl. How an anagama can produce such wonderful colours on raw clay I do not know. I have used the cup on numerous occasions but this was the first time I had seen and appreciated the colour. Maybe too much sake?
