Ash is an intermediate good used to make potash, lye, or for glazing ceramics. Ash is produced by burning wood at a wood furnace, and comes in bars, stored in a bar/block stockpile and viewable in the stocks screen under "bars". Ash bars are a surprisingly sound structural material, usable for building constructions, workshops and furnaces of equal parity to, say, granite. Although the precise material properties of ash are unknown, it is fire-safe and (somehow) magma-safe as well, making it a usable material when working with magma.

Procedurally generated creatures (such as titans and forgotten beasts) may occasionally be composed of ash, though killing them will just result in a useless pile of ash for your dwarves to clean up. A killed fire man will leave behind a useable bar of ash, though these creatures are rare.
