In 1976, Savvas Pottery relocated to Paphos and resumed production under the name of SAVVAS POTTERY (PAPHOS) LTD. Between 1976 and 1985 only the locally available red firing clays were used. In order to be able to apply a range of vivid colours, the pots had to be covered with a white coating which contained a mixture of different white firing clays.

To upgrade the quality of its production, Savvas Pottery decided to start importing various raw materials from Europe. These includ the white firing clays from Spain, which cannot be found anywhere in Cyprus, and red fir ing clay from Germany, both earthenware bodies of 12% porosity. The materials for the development of special colours and glazes come from all over Europe.

By 1986, the standard of production had been significantly raised to match European standards and specifications.

Meanwhile, Panikos Georgiades, one of Mr Savvas sons, was studying Ceramic Engineering in West Germany. In 1986, Panikos took over the technical side of the business and developed his own colours and glazes and led the pottery production in Cyprus into a new era.
