I have heard of some cracking with New ones from a few reasons-Bad batch from Factory and as mentioned wet or frozen ones.

As these where on top my thought is they got hot fast and had water in them hence the cracks.
You should store them off a concrete surface say up on wood to keep them from weeping up moisture during the winters
My advancers are out but under cover always but also up on a two x frame of wood with zero issues.
Also stored vertically

It happens to everyone at some point. I've unloaded a couple of kilns where the pots were holding up the shelf. Happened in college- once with old shelves, and once when a post from the salt kiln melted. Another reason it's good to have your pots only a tad shorter than the post- the shelf can't fall very far when it breaks!
