"Stunning!"

Just incredible! I will have to update my will to name which of my children will get this, as surely they will both want it. Also, heres a thought: sprinkle your surroundings with things of beauty to delight the eye and give joy to your heart. I will be placing this very painfully to maximise its effect on my spirit! Thank you so much, Gulam Rasool, for sharing your art and skill!

"Absolutely Gorgeous!"

This soapstone oil warmer was definitely worth the wait! The craftsmanship that has gone into making this piece is impressive and the product is of a very fine quality. The artist has clearly got great experience in carving. I would highly recommend this artist to others who are interested in similar designs/products.
