Close to his eightieth birthday, Gulam continues the art he learned from his elders. His father was an marble carver and jali artisan honored with the state award for excellence. Gulam has been honored with the same distinction. He still works alongside his son and other artisans to whom he has taught this art and treasures the role he plays in continuing this important Indian artistic tradition.

Nearing his eighth decade, Gulam continues to provide for his family, especially his grandchildren.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Gulam is proud to be able to help provide for his grandchildren's education.

"Beautiful!"

Absolutely gorgeous! Perfect workmanship. The marble turns slightly green when wet (them back to normal when dry), which I really like. The only downside is that the coasters are a bit small (all of my glasses fit on them, but some just barely), so I'm not sure if they will hold all of the water when glasses sweat a lot in the summer.

"Beautiful"

These are on display to be admired. I am afraid to use them, I don't want anything to happen then!
