Method 1: Till the Ground
As mentioned earlier, there are many ways to collect clay in Stardew Valley.
First and the easiest way to get clay is to till the ground. You can easily prepare the land for cultivation by using a scythe, hoe, pickaxe, and axe.

The second method is the artifacts spots. In simple terms, artifact spots are the three worms that you can see in anywhere on the land. These worms seem like popping up and dancing.
Using the hoe you can dig that spot and find some valuable things and minerals like lost books, golden ore, etc. you can find clay here, especially during the winter season.
Method 3: Clay Nodes
You can also get clay from clay nodes which you can find at the ginger island dig site. Ginger island contains a dig site next to the island field office. But you can not access the area because the bridge is broken. Once you offer 10 golden walnuts to the parrot, you can repair it and unlocks the area. After that, you can find clay nodes in the area.
