Creating Harmony through beauty.
Formerly branded as PLANET DIVA, INC. (1997-2006). ZivaWorks offers CAST PEWTER, DICHROIC GLASS, and SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS in this unique tile collection. A modern design studio, ZivaWorks seeks stratigic alliances in co-branding and or licensing with industry professionals.
ZIVA TILES AND HARDWARE
New metal tiles and unique hardware are continuously added to the ZivaWorks collection. Hand-crafted by artisans in the US, our metals are cast from lead-free pewter. Some designs are available in solid brass and solid bronze.
Deborah has created the ZIVAS and they have begun their debut at a gallery called, ART N SOUL ON 101 in Encinitas, California. The one of a kind art includes found objects, metal, and many other materials. Included in Deborah's portfolio are works on paper, 3D sculptural pieces, fabric and tile designs.
Images from our fifteen year history. (coming soon.)
Seventeen years ago I emerged from the fashion industry (Deborah Wiley California, Imagist International. Inc.), trying to decide what to do next. I took a year off to contemplate and regroup. I asked a friend who owned a concrete factory in Mexico if it would be possible to set little stamped metal pieces into concrete tile; he invited me to visit his facility and try it out. I drove to Tecate, Mexico, about 25 miles from San Diego and spent a delightfully creative day. The result was unique and exciting, I knew this was my next business. I also realized that I knew absolutely nothing about the tile industry. This original tile company, named Planet Diva, was launched at the New York Gift show in August of 1997. Soon after, I took Planet Diva into the tile market with the help of, among others, Graham White of Hastings Tile and Il Bagno in New York. We enlarged our distribution network and the tile collection grew into four categories with lots of different styles and techniques. Planet Diva was one of the first designer lines to bring metal coated resin tile, metal embedded concrete tile, cast pewter tile and dichroic glass tile into the marketplace. Graham developed the concept of casting tile in pewter and together we designed the cast metal collection you see here today. In 2006, we re-branded our tile line with a fresh image and positioned the new company to focus on product design. For many years I have worked with photography and found object sculpture. The Zivas are the result of the merger of these disciplines in a digital format. Ziva means "bright and radiant" in Hebrew and I have morphed the adjective into a noun; The Zivas as bright and radiant female avatars for our new world. Each Ziva has a "birth directive" outlining her purpose.
Creating anything requires passion. This passion is infused into the work and radiates out and into anyone who looks at or lives with the creation. As the viewer revels in the beauty, energies are merged. Realities are born, spaces transformed and joy realized.
Enjoy your journey....Dream your creations to life.
