by Kassandra Lamb ~ I’ve talked about expertise before HERE, asking the questions what is expertise and how do you know when you have enough of it to teach something to others.
But I recently stumbled upon a friend’s post from 2018 on the topic, and as always Barb Taub manages to make her point while also making you laugh.
Her post is about a potter on the Isle of Arran, where she lives part of the time. I went to this pottery while visiting her in 2019, and I came home with a sugar bowl that I love and a whole new respect for a truly expert potter. (Sadly, this gentleman passed away last year.)
Check out her post, The Clay is Free, for a chuckle and a tidbit of wisdom about expertise, as she tells the story of ordering two pots for her kitchen utensils — and “ten minutes, plus decades of expertise later,” he’d produced two lovely pots.
