Cutting terracotta to join with PVC

I need to join a piece of PVC pipe to a terracotta pipe. What is the best (and hopefully, easiest) way to do this?

I.e., masonry blade for circular saw, pipe cutter?, etc.

Masonry blade would do it, and a Fernco coupling would connect them.
Good Luck!

Thank you for the quick response.

I'd like to ask a little followup question if I could....

Do I need to wet the blade and/or the terracotta pipe to help prevent the clay pipe from crumbling? Or, should it cut through pretty easily?

Thanks again!

Rent a snap cutter at a rental yard.
