Ronald Ji cello bow
Ronald Ji has been an avid student and admirer of music performance, fine art, photography, and painting since he was a child. From 2004 to 2009, he worked with the Heirloom Art Studio to learn traditional woodworking and carving techniques. In 2009, Ronald attended the Salt Lake City School of Violin Making where he worked with Peter Prier, Charles Woolf, and Georg Meiwes. Ronald later joined the studio of Horacio Pineiro in New York City. During this period, he honed his skills as a violin and bow maker as well as a restorer of fine antique violins.
Ronald is also an accomplished photographer of many disciplines. His photographs can be seen in Strad Magazine, and he is also active in the fashion world photographing the runways of Fendi, Tom Ford, Bottega Veneta, Proenza Schouler, Tory Burch, Coach, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs.
Ronald is presently working out of his own studio in New York City. His bows are in high demand and in the hands of many talented players and international competition winners.
