How To Make Terracotta In Minecraft: The Recipe
Now onto how to make Terracotta in Minecraft, and for this you are going to need some coal and a block of clay. Open up your furnace menu, where you must place the coal (or any other applicable fuel source) in the lower place. That of course means that the block of clay can be placed in the top spot. Keep your furnace menu open while the clay is steadily burned. Now that the block of clay has been properly smelted in the furnace, you will have produced Terracotta, which you must place in your inventory to complete the process. That's how to make Terracotta in Minecraft.
As an addition, Terracotta can actually be found in some areas like the Badland Biomes, desert pyramids, and even warm underwater ruins, although all will differ in colour.
