"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.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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 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.
