I lament the lack of craftsmanship today. Artistry in everyday objects is hard to find or astronomically expensive. This beautiful woman has been making attractive functional umbrellas for decades and is a master of her craft. Hopefully she has and will train others to follow in her vocation so that the art won't be lost to future generations. We focus so much of efficiency and modernity that the things in our lives lack soul.
