Potash maker is a skill associated with the potash making labor.
Any dwarf with the potash maker labor enabled can use a unit of either ash or lye to produce potash at an ashery, which can then be used to fertilize crops or to contribute to the glass industry after further refining to pearlash at a kiln.
As potash does not carry a quality level, increasing one's potash maker skill level only affects production speed. Skilled potash makers are often associated with uselessness; when referring to expendable peons, players will often refer to them as "Urist McPotashmaker".
