This paper presents the results of on-going study of La Tène household ceramics from Nitra-Mikov dvor. This paper focuses mainly on the ceramic raw material provenance, modelling techniques and firing conditions of the household ceramics. The results suggest that ceramics from petrographic group MD1 as well as MD2 were made from local raw materials including Upper Pleistocene and Quaternary fluvial deposits and also Quaternary deluvial deposits. The presence of low metamorphic rocks in group MD3 suggests that this ceramics were imported. The modelling techniques as well as the firing conditions are very variable within the petrographic groups. In general the thin-walled ceramics were made using potter wheel, whereas the thick-walled ceramics were hand made. The firing temperature was estimated between 700–800 °C for ceramics with anisotropic matrix and 800–900 °C for ceramics with isotropic matrix and partially decomposed calcite.
