Meet Ronda

A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Ronda Roush recalls admiring her Grandmother’s extensive porcelain collection, which would become the starting point of her lifelong interest in the decorative arts. After receiving a Fine Arts degree from the University of Oklahoma, Ronda first began painting tile murals and sink basins while renovating some of her early homes. She painstakingly incorporated the timeless beauty of past European masters into her work while she further developed a growing affinity for porcelain painting.

In recent years, Ronda gradually shifted her focus to the design and production of fine Limoges boxes. Whenever possible, she traveled and sought out the fine china factories and soaked up the ambiance of the European artists, as well as frequenting the great museums of the world.

Ronda has designed original Limoges boxes for such notables as the Reverend Billy Graham, comedian Bill Cosby, talk show host Kathie Lee Gifford, radio personality Dr. Laura Schlessinger, singer Reba McEntire, television personality Barbara Walters, Hall of Famer and Congressman Steve Largent, former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Bishop Desmond Tutu, General Colin Powell, Queen Rania of Jordan and the late Charles Kuralt and Pamela Harriman. Ronda’s work has also been featured in several national Publications of Better Homes and Gardens as well as Architectural Digest.

Ronda was commissioned in 1999 to design a complete set of charger plates of the Indian Tribal Seals for the Governor of Oklahoma which can be seen on display at the Governor’s Mansion. She has also created a special line of Oklahoma giftware for the Oklahoma Governor’s Mansion Gift Store and its web site. Most recently Ronda was commissioned by former First Lady of Oklahoma Cathy Keating to design official State of Oklahoma porcelain dinnerware which was manufactured by the Lenox company

Corporate clients of the Ronda Roush Studios include the Oklahoma Governor’s Inauguration Committee; the Republican Governor’s Association; Ford Motor Glass Company; the University of Oklahoma; Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa; Vail Ski Resort; the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs; Castle Pines Golf Club, Colorado; US Open Golf Tournament; the Episcopal Church; American Heart Association; Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts and a host of art museums, sororities and fraternities around the country.

The Ronda Roush Studios continues to expand its specialty line of commemorative Limoges boxes, exclusively designed china, fine Christmas ornaments, silk scarves and neckties. Whether it is a one-of-a- kind keepsake or commemorative corporate gift, Ronda Roush crafts with the same integrity she observed in her grandmother’s prized china many years ago. That same memory of heart can be found in each new design from the Ronda Roush Studios.
