"These illuminate our library in our home"

Absolutely gorgeous and unique carvings. The artistic details make this pair perfect for any environment, from table centerpieces to our study. The candlelight provides soothing illumination, with the wisdom of owls to compliment our rest.

"Sopstone owl pair a wise purchase choice :)"

I love this pair of Sopstone oil burners! Packaging from India was amazing- no way that these little guys were going to break in transit. Natural color variation in each of the owls is awesome (beautiful patterns), and the Jali carving is top-notch. The base of each owl glows with candlelight- just as shown in the photo. Oil basins work perfectly for heating aromatics. The soapstone gets quite hot, so be careful while the owls are in use (be sure to position them on a heat-safe surface while burning). Also, be sure to keep an eye on the volume of fluid remaining in the oil basins if you burn over an extended period of time (if burning essential oils in water, the water can evaporate quickly). Awesome. I love everything about them. Would absolutely purchase a second time and recommend to friends. I own several items by this same artist, and plan on purchasing future works from him as well.

"Second elephant art purchased from Gulam"

Precious piece and worried about arriving safe and sound. Relieved packaging was so secure took me removal of several layers of wrapping to get to box! Superb crafting of many elephants (my favorite creature) and love round design and substantial weight and size. Only disappointment is not off-white or ecru color as shown online, but a much darker brown or grayish shade. Nevertheless, love his work. Wish Gulam could bring back dyed/colored soapstone that he used to craft years ago. I have one of his pieces of a soapstone multi-colored elephant small box which I truly treasure.
