Morphologies of water vessels

The families of water containers which have been produced in our cultural environment are very diverse and we call them “morphologies”.  Some of the most important among them are the following:  pitchers, Cantarella, spouted pitcher (jet, Pedarra…), water bottles, buckets, jugs and pitchers.
