2. Add The Clay And Fuel To The Furnace

In the furnace menu, we need to add the clay and the fuel (coal, for example).

Place the fuel of your choice in the bottom box and the clay in the top box. In our example below, we use coal as fuel.

After the clay has cooked in the furnace for some time, one terracotta will appear in the box to the right.

After your terracotta has appeared in the box to the right, drag it down to your inventory for use.
