padding and glowing

Meanwhile, back in the studio and it is freezing, thermals, padded shirts and two pairs of trousers were essential; in fact I was so well padded that had I fallen over, I probably would have bounced and I am not sure that I could have got up again. I was working with clay yesterday, so I wasn't quite so active as I am when I am carving;  I was preparing some porcelain for a new sculpture, this is a material I have never tried before so there are some exiting times ahead. This is assuming I haven't succumbed to hypothermia and/or frostbite in the cold of the studio.
My studio is hard by the Olympic park in east London,  and I see Anish Kapoor's 'Mittal Tower' from my studio, gleaming at me in the night, the red glow provides the only warmth
