This article is about Terracotta. For the decorative block obtained via smelting, see Glazed Terracotta.

Terracotta (previously known as Stained Clay and Hardened Clay before 1.12) is the baked version of a Clay Block that is used as a decorative building material.

Sources

Terracotta generates naturally in Mesa Biomes in large quantities, but it can also be created by Smelting a regular clay block in a Furnace. Orange and blue terracotta also generates as a part of Desert Temples.

Mechanics

When terracotta is broken, it drops itself. However, it can only be gathered by using a pickaxe, or it will simply be destroyed.

Terracotta has the same blast resistance as most other stone blocks, which is significantly higher than a regular block of clay. A block of terracotta, when one meter away from a Creeper Explosion, will protect any blocks behind it. However, the terracotta block itself will be destroyed in the process.

Terracotta can be smelted to produce Glazed Terracotta.

Crafting

Stained clay

Terracotta can be "stained" many different colors, similar to Wool, Concrete Powder, and Glass. Simply place 8 blocks around the edge of a Crafting Table interface, with the desired dye in the middle square (as pictured).


Trivia

  • Stained clay retains a darkened hue after being dyed from the original red/brown.
  • As of update 1.8, stained clay replaced wool in Desert Temples.
  • Terracotta has a smoother look compared to Wool.
  • Terracotta is useful for creating pixel art, or creating houses. Like Bricks, they are not used for anything other than building.
