Ash Davis Mojang avatar.png Once you’ve stained your terracotta to a hue of your choosing, stick it in a furnace with a suitable fuel, and smelt it into its final form: beautiful, colorful blocks, textured with ornate patterns, perfect for adorning smaller sized builds.

Glazed terracotta is a vibrant solid block which comes in the 16 regular dye colors.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Smelting[edit | edit source]

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

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.

While glazed terracotta can be pushed by sticky pistons or slime blocks, it is unique among blocks in that it cannot be pulled. It also does not stick to slime blocks.

Several different 2x2 tile patterns.

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]

Creeper face on cyan glazed terracotta.

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.

Data values[edit | edit source]

Glazed terracotta is defined by its ID and block data. Glazed terracotta also has a block state which is expected to replace the functionality of block data in a future version.

Block data[edit | edit source]
