Ron Ho (b. 1936) is a jeweler and honored art educator living in Seattle, WA. Born to traditional Chinese parents, Ho grew up in Hawaii, surrounded by diverse cultures and their unique artistic expressions. His work has been influenced and informed by contrasts of American and Chinese culture and by the cultural diversity he now encounters, living in the Pacific Northwest.
By using found-object pieces and materials enriched by cultural associations, his work reflects his search for a cultural sphere from areas as far as Thailand, Nepal and Afghanistan. Now retired, Ho is the recipient of several distinguished art educator honors and his jewelry is in the collections of numerous private and public collections, including the Tacoma Art Museum and the King County Arts Commission.
