Terracotta pots - how to separate?

Daft question perhaps but bought numerous terracotta pots in B & Q clearance last week and have managed to jam a 21cm pot into a 10 litre tom.pot whilst transporting them home in car. Any tips would be appreciated otherwise I'll try to gently smash the cheaper pot!! Thanks Jane

    This iz going to sound odd, but will allmost certainly work. Hold outer pot upside down and tap gently with something hard. Change the shape of frequency of the tapping and eventually rhe smaller will fall out. So do it over something soft!
