There is an interesting relationship between facts and truth. It's necessary to have facts if we want to know the truth, but facts on their own can be terribly misleading. We need to gather as many of them as we can, see the patterns and relationships, interpret the relative importance and look at things over the course of time if we want to start truly understanding the truth. Consider, for instance, trying to understand a war by reading the daily newspaper accounts written as the war was going on. You'd end up with a huge collection of facts but little perspective, little sense of the turning points and the significant battles. That's where historians come in, to try to find the real truth contained in all those facts.

"Pots" and other large vessels in the Bible represent those facts and factual ideas, which serve as containers for truth the same way pots serve as containers for water or wine. Pots fill their function because they are hard, strong and impervious; facts are also absolute and unchanging, filling their function the same way. And pots must be filled to serve any use, just as facts must be filled with truth to serve any purpose.

To some extent this meaning also applies to cups, bowls and other smaller vessels, though it is a little more immediate. Generally you don't fill a cup so you can store a liquid; you fill it to drink it. Smaller vessels then often take more of their meaning from the substance they contain, and in many cases ("cup" and "wine" especially) actually mean the same thing.
