The key for drilling into ceramic or glass is to do so slowly and to keep both the bit and tile wet with a spray bottle full of water to avoid overheating. If the tile and bit overheat, the tile will crack and the drill bit will be ruined. It is also important to run the drill at a slow to medium speed. And be sure to let up on the pressure when you’re almost through the tile.
