How to make a Brick

To make a brick in Minecraft, you will need to find some clay, heat it up in a furnace, then use the brick to create a full brick block! We'll walk you through it step-by-step below.

Step 1: Find Clay

Clay is a natural resource that can be found on the map at the bottom of rivers and lakes. It spawns in a kind of diamond shaped pattern that looks like this:

You will want to use a shovel to harvest it the quickest, and each block should give you a total of 4 clay balls.

Step 2: Create the Brick

Now that we have our clay, we will need a Furnace to heat it up in. You can use any fuel, this includes: planks, logs, charcoal, or coal. Place your fuel in the furnace as well as your Clay Balls to receive a brick!
