The main goal of this paper is to explore the diversity of Gravettian ceramics (30–20/16 thousand years ago), from Central and Eastern Europe. Most of the ceramic fragments were found in the Czech Republic. So far many ceramic analises have been made providing information about the technique of ceramic production in the Upper Paleolithic. Similar analyses have also been conducted in Russia allowing for comparing different types of ceramic production in various parts of Europe. The article discusses the finds ceramics from Czech (Pavlov, Dolní Věstonice) and Russian (Kostenki, Zaraysk) archaeogical sites and draws attention to features such as raw material, manufacturing and firing techniques and probable functions which such artefacts may have played. It is argued that the ability to produce ceramics in Gravettian cultures in Central and Eastern Europe developed at different times and in different ways
