I will discuss the limit shapes for local minimizers of the Alt-Caffarelli energy. Fine properties of the associated pinning intervals, continuity/discontinuity in the normal direction, determine the formation of facets in an associated quasi-static motion. The talk is partially based on joint work with Charles Smart.
