Default Vortex Bowl Hole Problem

Just received my first vortex bowl today, and one of the four holes is blocked. It appears that it was never open prior/post production ("firing"). So the ceramic has a dimple, but is filled with material that has been fired and rock hard. Question: Anyone have any ideas on how to open? My only idea is to try to drill it out, but I'm worried I'l crack the spire top off! The upside is that is does smoke well, but I'm thinking it's only "running" on 75% of the openings since it should have 4 out of 4 open, instead of the 3 out of 4 it has now... Anyone ever drill a bowl? The vendor I purchased it from has treated me well, so I'd hate to call and complain...
