You forgot salad 😂😂. But there is not much that can’t have drain holes drilled . Some materials other than drill bits . Like a grind stone but patients goes a long way . Many containers would make a unique bonsai pot . But it g go as to be able to drain

Bonsai trays without holes are called 'suiban'
They are used for trees on rocks where the roots are in pockets on the rock and don't reach the soil. Water in the tray helps keep the rock damp to reduce drying out.
The tray can be filled with water or sand to suggest sea or lake.

There are other possible uses but suiban are definitely a thing and are made on purpose for particular uses.
