Born and raised in a small Ohio steel town, Jim Zivic had his industrial vision defined from an early age. Surrounded by Amish woodworkers, strip mining, dairy farms and his family’s steel trucking business, Zivic was inspired to create things both useful and artistic. He moved to New York upon graduation from Ohio Wesleyan with a BFA in Painting and embarked on a career of making art and furniture. Leather, coal and steel are the signature materials in Zivic’s work, which has been collected by Lou Reed, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent and Yohji Yamamoto, among others. He joined RALPH PUCCI in 2005.
