Tadd Myers Adds ‘The Grammys’ To The American Craftsman Series

Photographer, Tadd Myers was inspired by his father, Landis Wilson Myers, to document and tell the story of the American Craftsman.  His father worked as a wood worker, home builder, metal worker, guitar player, printing pressman, baseball player and self-made business man.  “My father loved working with his hands and would have felt a very deep connection to this project.”  To continue, Tadd adds his 20th installment to the American Craftsman  series.  This time it’s John Billings of Billings Artworks in Ridgway, Colorado.  Mainly known for creating the beautiful sculpture for the music awards, The Grammy.

John Billings, ‘The Grammy Man” says, “Perfection is what we strive for, knowing full well it can’t be achieved.  Each Grammy we make has it’s own character, it’s own soul.  To see the joy in a Grammy Winner’s face is very humbling experience and you forget all of the burns, cuts and bruises.”
