Making a Block of Clay in Minecraft: A Comprehensive Guide

Clay blocks are typically discovered in areas where both sand and water coexist, often appearing in shallow water, particularly along the coast of island groups. Another common location for their presence is underwater in swamp biomes. Distinguishing clay from sand while underwater can be done by noting its slightly blue-gray color.

When a shovel is used to mine clay, it yields four clay balls. Obtaining clay is considered moderately challenging due to the reduced speed of shoveling underwater. In the Village and Pillage update, there is a chance that a stone mason, under the influence of the hero of the village effect, may throw clay blocks. This introduces an additional way for players to acquire clay during gameplay.

This tutorial elucidates the process of crafting a Block of Clay, providing step-by-step instructions accompanied by screenshots for a seamless crafting experience.
