Clay is a building material used in the construction and furnishing of homesteads in Hearthfire.


Clay Deposit

A Clay Deposit.

Thirty bricks of clay can be found inside the chest next to the drafting table on any purchased plot of land. This material is mined with a pickaxe from sources called "Clay Deposit" found throughout Skyrim. These sources can yield 4000 units each before depleting.

Homestead depositsEdit

  • Lakeview Manor: Directly outside, slightly to the right facing out of the front door, in front of a grouping of three trees.
  • Heljarchen Hall: Directly outside, to the right, slightly to the rear of the stable. Also located in front of the carpenter's table, near the Stone Quarry.
  • Windstad Manor: Just north of the wood chopping block.

Other depositsEdit

  • Druadach Redoubt - just across the river.
  • Guardian Stones - directly across the river, northwest, from a hunter's camp.
  • Ivarstead - south of the bridge, along the river before the large waterfall. A second deposit can be found past the large waterfall, on the opposite side of the river from the troll cave.
  • Kolskeggr Mine - across the river from Pavo's house, and another located a little bit upstream between a rock and some fallen brush.
  • Mara's Eye Pond - west shore, even with the island.
  • Valtheim Towers - under the bridge on the other side of the river, and another a little bit upstream.
  • Ilinalta Fisherman - by the trail leading to the camp.
  • Largashbur - below the bridge separating Largashbur and the lake. Walk a few steps in the direction of the lake, (still below the bridge).
  • Bleakwind Basin - just outside the camp's northern edge, near the bank of a pond.
  • Merryfair Farm - southwest of the fence (facing the water), along the shore, and between the cliffs. 
  • Nightgate Inn - three are located here on the banks of the pond behind the inn: one just underneath the dock's left-hand side, one on the southern shore (right-most bank from the dock.) and one on the eastern shore (directly across the pond from the dock.)
  • Bruca's Leap Redoubt - follow the path southwest out of the main entrance to the camp. The trail terminates at the river; the deposit is on the right on the river bank. The deposit is just down the mountain and across the river from Harmugstahl.
  • Brittleshin Pass South - Go south from the entrance and a short wooden pier with the end slightly sunken into the lake can be found. Turn east and follow the shore of the lake to a small cut inland to find the clay deposit. 
  • Someone else will want to edit this, but there happens to be a Deposit on the lake that Riften is on as well on the side that the city is on but on the far side of the lake away from the players house in Riften across but following the edge of the dock across the way. On the left side leaving Riften towards the Shadow Stone, more or less.
  • Riverwood - Go down the stream next to the log mill. Keep going up the stream until nearing the rapids. The clay deposit will be under a ridge to the left right before the rapids.
  • Lost Valley Redoubt- Right below the Forsworn camp, there is a lake in front of the waterfall. The clay deposit will be directly north of the waterfall. It will be on the edge of the lake.
  • Treva's Watch - Just across the river, a bit south, there's a deposit next to some slaughterfish eggs.
  • Robber's Gorge - From the fast travel point go west. The clay deposit can be found just south of some standing stones, along the shore.
  • Along a river bank between Sky Haven Temple and Reachwater Rock, near a crashed boat filled with mead and gems.
  • Along the waterside just south of Nilheim.
