The Ball Collector - Part 1


 I've been collecting decorative bone balls for many years now and I have quite a few of different sizes, colours and designs. The reason for this tendency I cannot really explain, but I guess it has to do with their colourful intricate patterns, texture and colour combination. I find them appealing and very beautiful for they are decorated and embellished with amazing patterns  in order to give them an elegant appeal. For Winter decoration I choose them in earth  hues, placed them in a wood plate and they are now brightening a former  empty corner of my living room.

Eu tenho vindo a fazer coleção de bolas de osso desde há anos e agora tenho um bom número de diferentes tamanhos, cores e desenhos. A razão para esta tendência realmente não sei explicar, mas eu acho que tem a ver com os padrões coloridos intrincados , a textura e a combinação de cores. Eu acho-as apelativas e muito bonitas, uma vez que são decoradas e enfeitadas com  padrões surpreendentes, a fim de conferir-lhes elegância. Para a decoração de inverno escolhi-as em tons de  terra, coloquei-as num prato de madeira  e agora estão a dar vida um  canto anteriormente vazio da minha sala de estar.
