The block can be obtained by smelting any stained clay. Smelting regular, clean blocks of hardened clay does not work.

Due to its strikingly colorful appearance, glazed terracotta is primarily used for decoration. As a building material, its hardness is slightly less than stone, and its blast resistance is even lower than wood.
When placed, glazed terracotta's texture will rotate depending on the direction the player is facing. If several glazed terracotta blocks of the same color are placed in the "correct" orientation in a 2x2 or greater area, the textures will line up to create a singular image, as demonstrated in the image to the right.
Although the design of each individual glazed terracotta block is left to the player's interpretation, there are some obvious aspects in certain blocks:
- Magenta blocks contain an arrow.
- Cyan blocks contain a creeper face. (The design will be changed in a future snapshot)
- Purple blocks contain the hilt of a sword and the head of a pickaxe.
