On Friday we ate lunch at Mocan & Green Grout, located under this cascade of oxidised steel plate.
Customers sit on thin leather cushions on blocks of wood, or on string stools. The place is bustling with staff, cooking and conversation. While waiting for our meal we had something to drink.
My tea came in a dramatically shaped iron tea pot.
I struggled to draw the pot’s unusual shape. The flattened base, the solid handle and the elegant spout. A gradation of raised spots flared across the cast iron surface. I made more sense of the spots when I drew them on the corner of the page.
