While you can naturally find undyed Terracotta and some colored variants in Badlands biomes, Villages, and Desert Pyramids, you can also create regular Terracotta in a Furnace by smelting Clay Blocks with any fuel resource.

After you have your Terracotta, you can dye it by placing eight pieces of Terracotta on a Crafting Table surrounding a Dye of any color. It will return eight blocks of that Terracotta in that color. You can also obtain colored Terracotta by trading an Emerald to a Mason Villager.

Once you have your Dyed Terracotta, you can create Glazed Terracotta by smelting it in a Furnace again with any fuel resource. This will create a form of Terracotta with a colorful design on it that you can use to add a little flair to your decorations.

You can see the designs each Dyed Terracotta makes in the image above. These can be used for all kinds of designs for building your Minecraft homes and bases, so it’s worth going to the extra effort and forging these blocks so your world will look impressive whenever people come to visit.

Outside of looking colorful and more unique than a traditional block of Stone, Wood, or anything else in Minecraft, Terracotta and Glazed Terracotta do not have many uses. You can use them to create designs that can not be made any other way in the game. Magenta Glazed Terracotta can even be used as an arrow system to direct players to go certain ways.
