A potter’s mask is a shield worn on the face, to cover the mouth and nose, to protect, stop and control inhalation of dangerous products. There are many different types designed for hard industrial work and for ordinary everyday pottery for protection against dust, particles, etc. They are usually disposable and should always be used when spraying, cleaning and preparing ceramic products.
