Ceramic Bucket

 This is a Minecraft Forge mod which adds a Ceramic Bucket to the game. So it is possible to craft a bucket out of clay.

All Buckets


Since mod version the library mod BucketLib (Github, Curseforge, Modrinth) is required.

The Fabric / Quilt version needs also the following mods:


Adds 2 items to the game:

  • Unfired Clay Bucket: Craftable with three clay balls.
  • Ceramic Bucket: Craftable in furnace with an Unfired Clay Bucket.


The Ceramic Bucket acts like a normal bucket and can contain water, lava, milk, powder snow, axolotl, tadpole and fish. All bucketable mod fluids, blocks & entities are supported. (see also BucketLib Wiki)

The only difference is, if the bucket contains hot fluids (like lava) with a temperature of 1000 (configurable) or higher, it melts as soon as you empty it.


All Ceramic Bucket variants can be dyed like leather armor.

Ceramic Buckets with different colors


All mod fluids and gases are supported since mod version 2.0.0.

All milk fluids are supported if they have the fluid tag "forge:milk".

If there are any problems, please contact me here in the comments or with a Github Issue.


There is also a wiki where you can read all details about the mod.

Port to another Minecraft version? Which versions are supported?

Sorry, but I do not backport any mod to an older version. Here is a list of all supported and planned versions: Minecraft mod versions of cech12

Is there a Fabric version?
Since 1.20.4 the mod is available for Fabric & Quilt. There is no plan to backport Fabric support to earlier Minecraft versions. For earlier versions please check out these mods: Clay Bucket [Fabric/Quilt], Early-Game Buckets (Fabric)

Where is the config file? 
There is a defaultconfig directory, where you can find it. If you change something there it has only an effect on new savegames. For existing savegames you need to go to the serverconfig directory of the savegame. 

I found a bug or I have a good idea to enhance this mod!
