It was the purpose of this study to discover the number of various form qualities that it is possible to achieve within pottery vessels that are closely related by similar feet, bodies, and lips. The variety of form qualities sought for were of a visual nature; the entire pot seeming to appear more or less vertical or more or less horizontal than others with the same type of body but with different shapes of lips and feet selected to be used.
