looking for winter survival tips

So my imagination's lately been filled to overflow with large handbuilt
earthenware planters. Trouble is I live in Michigan where it freezes, not
in Firenza where it doesn't freeze quite so much. That and I'm not the sort
to haul large planters (say 20-22" in diameter?) into the house for the winter.

What's the communal wisdom about earthenware clay bodies that can withstand
a winter of freeze'n'thaw, etc.? Or would it be best just to leap up the
cone/temp scale and go with a stoneware for starters? Cone 5-6? Higher?
