Intelligent or clever working; skill, ingenuity, or cleverness in the execution of anything.

"Industry is very different now so, in terms of the manufacturing and making. We don’t have the steel mills working in quite the same way. We don’t have the potteries working in the same way. I worked quite a bit with Middleport Pottery and they opened in 1888. They never stopped producing but they ended up in two rooms in this huge factory simply because of the decline of people wanting their pottery."
