Say Hello To Jason Roberts, Metal Smith And Artisan

Jason Roberts, 28, is a metal smith who has set up shop at the Globe Dye Works, it’s very first tenant, for more than a year and four months.  He’s originally from Royersford in Montgomery County, and after studying fine metal and silver smithing at Kutztown University, he plied his trade in North Carolina, Illinois and England.  What’s he do?  Apparently tons of stuff that deals with working metal into cool stuff.


Jason is the real deal, and while he’s in Frankford doing his thing, we’ll try to keep up with him and show this city what great things are coming out of Frankford these days.  Case in point, do you see what he’s standing in?  Can you take a guess what it is?  Or better yet, where it’s going to be installed.  Cause when I found out, I was pretty impressed.  You only have a few days to guess, cause I just gotta share this.  Welcome to Frankford Jason, even though you’ve been here a while.
