Ceramic - Pottery Dictionary

Jugs are utensils to hold, carry and pour liquid and can be made of different materials. They always have a lip to direct the liquid while pouring it out. Usually the lip and the handle are in line and on opposite sides, but they can be at 90º to each other. A jug can also be without a handle and is then held by the neck or the main body. To make a jug by turning is basically the same as a vase but it has a lip and can be with or without a handle.
