I am an Australian artist who has had a successful career for over 3 decades and I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Jason Kahl for being my guiding hand and mentor especially when I ﬁrst began making large sculptural works. Jason has outstanding knowledge in all facets of art fabrication. I worked with Jason from 2010 - 2019 while he was Production Manager at UAP. During this time, I regularly sought his advice on a complex array of practical issues - everything from detailed, intricate construction techniques, recommendations of diﬀerent materialities, foundry work to logistics and project management. Jason was always responsive, easy to talk things over with and most importantly, he is an expert problem solver - all of which were invaluable qualities to me as an artist.
In very huge part it was Jason Kahl’s generosity and commitment to attaining the best possible outcome that my work has grown and matured to a point where I now have a very substantial national and international market for my public sculptural work.

I am a little bit obsessed with our fence. Jason from @craftedbefab responded with ease to our desire for a gal steel #midcenturystyle fence that was reflective of the horizontal and vertical lines which dominate our 1968 home by #johndaltonarchitect architect.
...and we also asked him to add a bit of fun with 70’s colours, oh and give us some privacy but don’t block us in!

We all love to support local small business (especially those that started a new venture during the Covid craziness)& this man is brilliant! 💛💚
I am so lucky to be your client!! Something about the magic in my sculptures demanding to be created in Santa's workshop?
During my time at UAP as Sculptor and Patter Maker I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Jason. I found it to be an exiting and positive experience, I was quickly welcomed as part of the team. We have kept in touch over the years and have known each other for about 8 years since then. I found Jason’s managerial approach very professional and positive, clear and concise, his attitude was calm and supportive and he always displayed diligence and integrity and was dedicated to every project. He didn’t forget to smile even when problems arouse.
I would definitely work with Jason again.
