Question: Are you able to use a cordless drill on ceramic pots? clay pots?

Editor's Note:

When drilling ceramic, shell or pots mark the spot you want to drill with a crayon or marker then cover it with clear scotch tape. Stop drilling every 5 seconds or so to keep it from getting too hot, you can also have someone squirt water on the place you are drilling to help cool it. It's always good to try on a piece of broken pottery first so you can get an idea how it will work. A cordless drill with a good drill bit should work.
