He still works alongside his son and other artisans to whom he has taught this craft, and treasures the role he plays in continuing this important Indian artistic tradition.

Gulam Rasool has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $1800.

Nearing his eighth decade, master stone sculptor Gulam Rasool 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.

"Exquisite and beautiful"

I am so pleased I have discovered Novica recently! The soapstone vase is beautiful with its delicate lacy patterns. I lived in India as a child and this vase with its beauty brings back so many precious memories. It makes me so happy every time I look at it. Thank you, Gulam Rasool, for your amazing work!

"Perfect Wedding Gift!"

I purchased this as a wedding gift and was very happy with the results. I splurged for the deluxe gift wrap, which was lovely. (Although to his credit, G. Rasool does a great job with the standard gift wrap as well!) The recipients were thrilled with the vase. It arrived very quickly and was extremely well packaged. I have purchased things from this artist before and would definitely get something from him again.
