It depends on where you are. If you live in an area where freeze/ thaw issues are a consideration, then hands down, porcelain is your best bet. It had virtually no absorbsion to it, and therefore won't pop due to frost. The good news is that porcelain comes in an unbelieveable variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and TEXTURES. ;)
