Breaking[edit | edit source]
Glazed terracotta requires a pickaxe to be mined. When mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.

Usage[edit | edit source]
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.
Placement[edit | edit source]
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.
Texture[edit | edit source]
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.
- Purple blocks contain the hilt of a sword and the head of a pickaxe.
