Making a clay pot cave

I have a new clay pot and I was wondering how I would be able to cut doorways into it. I would have it upside down and have entrances to go into and out of it. How would I be able to create these doorways. Thank you!

Do you own or can you borrow a Dremel?
You can get a wheel at the big box store for it that works.
Gotta be careful though, wear glasses.

dremel is the best way. you can do something like hit it with a small hammer and slowly break it away. then sand it down so its not sharp.
