Tree branches frequently break off and die. When the break is close to the trunk the tree forms new wood around and, eventually, if the tree lives long enough, over, the stub of the dead branch. This creates a bowl-like structure that can be used for a functional spoon if the wood finally encompasses the stub or, if not, a potentially interesting decorative spoon. The bowl for this spoon was formed in that manner. As the species is "ash" the title (thanks to Dan Driscoll) is a double entendre!
