Gulam's story

Gulam is an artisan from India who specializes in carved soapstone candle holders and home decor. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of stone.

Gulam has been selling through Novica since 2004. This is his story:

Gulam comes from a family that has a long relationship with the art of sculpting marble. "I became interested in this rich work and started helping my father in his work. He was honored with the State Award for Excellence in marble sculpting in 1979. After working with my father for a long time, I ventured out on my own. I experimented with different designs and gave a new dimension to the traditional styles. I have been honored with a State Award for Excellence in marble handicrafts."

"Thank you to all who have stood by me even in these tough times of the pandemic. When there is not even a ray of hope anywhere else, you have believed in me and supported me. Thank you!"
