Mosaic bench modeled after Gaudi's benches in Park Guell was severely damaged by freezing water, which penetrated and cracked the porous ceramic tile. Sealing with multiple applications of a tile and grout sealer could have minimized this damage, but using glass and porcelain tile could have avoided it entirely.
