Most of the items that can be crafted with Stardew Valley Clay are simple and require few other components to make. The catch here is that you’ll probably have to make them in large numbers.

No one is going to craft a single batch of Brick Floors. They’ll probably require dozens of different batches if they intend to decorate their farm.

The following is a list of all items that can be made with Clay, as well as their full ingredients:

  1. Bone Mill: 3x Clay, 10x Bone Fragment and 20x Stone.
  2. Brick Floor (5): 2x Clay and 5x Stone.
  3. Deluxe Retaining Soil: 1x Clay, 5x Stone and 3x Fiber.

With the Stardew Valley Clay recipes out of the way, let’s take a look at how to find the resource.

Each of the following sources has a chance to yield Clay potentially.

Digging Dirt

Digging On The Farm.

While working on your farm with the Hoe or trying to find the staircase to the next floor in the Mines, there is a small chance that you will find Clay. In fact, whenever you dig up any dirt in this game, you have a chance to find the material.

You’re likely to find Clay via this method a whole lot, but mostly by accident. And while there is no truly guaranteed source for this material in the entire game, digging up dirt is by far the most reliable. So make sure not to carelessly toss any Stardew Valley Clay from your inventory after a Mine adventure.

Opening Geodes

Geodes are small mineral deposits that players will find quite often when breaking rocks in the Mines. They have no inherent value by themselves, but they can be cracked open at the Blacksmith shop for 25g. From here it’s a game of chance.

These Geodes can yield a number of different useful resources, but thankfully Stardew Valley Clay is fairly common. The chances are that you’ll be hoping for something a bit more valuable than this simple resource, but Clay is always good to have regardless.

Artifact Spots

While exploring the map of Pelican Town, players will sometimes encounter a few worms wriggling out of the ground. These are called Artifact Spots, and striking them with your hoe has a chance to yield some Artifacts or Lost Books.

There is also a good chance that you’ll get Clay instead. So whenever you come across Artifact Spots in the wild, take the time to dig them up for a reward.
