This article is about the non-glazed block. For the smelted form, see Glazed Terracotta.

Terracotta is a block formed from clay, with a hardness and blast resistance comparable to stone. It can be colored in the same 16 colors that wool can be dyed, but more dulled and earthen.

Obtaining[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Red, orange, yellow, brown, white, light gray, and uncolored terracotta can be found naturally in badlands biomes, which yield massive amounts of terracotta. Orange terracotta and one blue terracotta can also be found in desert pyramids. Light blue is found in warm underwater ruins.

Uncolored terracotta can be found in mason houses in plains villages and in some savanna and desert village houses. White terracotta can be found as a housing material in plains villages. Yellow, orange and red terracotta generates in some houses in savanna villages. Green terracotta generates in the mason houses of desert villages.

Breaking[edit]

Terracotta can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

Crafting[edit]

Once terracotta has been dyed, the color cannot be changed or removed.

Trading[edit]

Expert-level stone mason villagers offer to sell one of 16 colored terracotta for one emerald per terracotta as part of their trades.

Usage[edit]

Building[edit]

Terracotta has the same blast resistance as most other stone blocks, which is significantly higher than the block of clay before being smelted. A block of terracotta when one block away from a creeper or TNT explosion protects any blocks behind it, although the terracotta itself is destroyed.

All types of terracotta can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass drum" sound.
