The aim of this artistic research is to explore ceramic panels created in Lithuania in the Soviet period by artistic means. The research is based on the material related to ceramic panels created in the late Soviet period, approximately from 1974 to 1987, which was collected by the students of the State Art Institute of the Lithuanian SSR between 1986 and 1989. The material sheds light on works that were created in Kaunas, Vilnius and Alytus, and currently are for a large part demolished.
