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.

Ash Davis[1]

Glazed terracotta is a vibrant solid block that comes in the 16 regular dye colors, obtained by smelting colored terracotta.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Glazed terracotta requires a pickaxe to be mined. When mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

Natural generation[edit]

Purple glazed terracotta generates in some cold underwater ruins.

Yellow glazed terracotta generates in mason houses in savanna villages.

Orange glazed terracotta generates in savanna village armorer houses.

White glazed terracotta generates in some desert village buildings.

Lime glazed terracotta generates in one of the desert village temples.

Smelting[edit]

Glazed Terracotta can be obtained by smelting any stained terracotta. Unstained terracotta cannot be smelted.

Trading[edit]

Expert-level stone mason villagers sell 1 glazed terracotta for an emerald as part of their trades.

Usage[edit]

Sixteen sets of 10 block sections, each with 8 terracotta tiles and two carpet squares. The sets are arranged in a chevron pattern with each color of terracotta in clockwise and counterclockwise laying patterns. The colors from left to right on the top are magenta, pink, orange, brown black, red, green, lime green. The colors from left to right on the bottom row are yellow, white, blue light blue, cyan, purple, light grey and grey.

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 terracotta.

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

Placement[edit]

When placed, glazed terracotta's texture rotates relative to the direction the player is facing while placing the block. If several glazed terracotta blocks of the same color are placed in the "correct" orientation in a 2×2 or greater area, the textures align to create a singular image, as demonstrated in the image to the right.

The magenta glazed terracotta pattern includes an arrow (⬆) design that can be used to point to things or direct players. A guide is shown below, in order to correctly place the arrow direction (based on testing).

Texture[edit]

Glazed Terracotta blocks are designed to form a larger, cohesive pattern when placed in the correct 2×2 configuration. Most textures have reflection symmetry along a diagonal line that goes from corner to corner, though the colors of individual pixels can differ slightly.

Although the design of each individual glazed terracotta block is up for interpretation, there are some intentional details in certain blocks:

  • Magenta blocks contain a directional arrows.
  • Cyan blocks contain a creeper's face.
  • Purple blocks contain the hilt of a sword and the head of a pickaxe.
  • Lime blocks contain a crossbow.
