ceramic vaseHave you ever thought how your lovely vase would be even more beautiful if it was a lamp?

You may have thought that it cannot be possible as the ceramic would shatter if you tried to drill the holes required for a lamp?

Well we’re here to tell you (and courtesy of customer David Johnstone, show you) that it IS possible!

The trick is
to use a circular diamond drill bit – and use it very slowly on the ceramic base in order to drill the flex and rod holes to avoid shattering the vase.

Although a potentially hazardous job,  don’t be put off by sculptors, shops etc who categorically say it cannot be done. Because it can!

and here is the proof…
