How To Get Clay In Minecraft
1. Find A Clay Block
First, we need to find a block of clay to mine. You can find clay blocks in water.
2. Select A Shovel
The fastest way to mine clay is with a shovel. Any shovel will work, including the diamond shovel, golden shovel, iron shovel, stone shovel, or wooden shovel.
In our example, we are using the diamond shovel.
3. Mine The Clay Block
You can mine the clay blocks using the following game controls:
- Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: left click on the clay block and hold
- Pocket Edition (PE): tap on the clay block and hold
- Xbox 360, Xbox One: press the RT button and hold
- PS3, PS4: press the R2 button and hold
- Wii U, Nintendo Switch: press the ZR button and hold
Keep breaking the block until the clay appears.

Now, pick up the clay. Once picked up, you should see clay in your Hotbar.
You now have clay! You can use clay balls to make bricks in a furnace or you can craft them back to clay blocks.
