Stainless Steel Home Accents
The stainless-steel balls I create are based on a traditional ball from Southeast Asia, used in a game called sepak raga in Malaysia. There it is made from rattan cane and is very light. I have added another layer to the traditional weave and the ball consists of 16 pieces of rope. There are thus 32 ends hidden within the ball. The rope is usually used for rigging on ships and for heavy lifting gear and although it is very expensive I enjoy working with it because it is uniform throughout its length and is naturally springy, forming perfect circles without any kinks or bulges.
