a master potter


      The contemporary Greek potter, Nikos Ploumakis, has "mastered" his art form. What this means is that he is capable of completing a task to perfection without thinking about how it should be accomplished. When students become a master, their performance will appear "easy." This is not because the task is easy, it is because he or she has become a master at their craft/art. This is the last stage of Development in the arts.
