THE CRITICS SAY:
Bailey has never ceased pushing the technical limits of clay to further his vision. He responds with reason, imagination, and native humor to contemporary life and American material culture. The result is art that sheds light on our ever shifting social mores and modes of communication, the history of ceramics, and the evolution of American wit.", Diana Daniels- Curator, Crocker Art Museum
rimming with references to science and anthropology, Bailey's clay and metal sculptures stand alone in the contemporary art scene. Comprising subjects that range from mad doctors and archaeological specimens to robots, aliens and scientific apparatus."... Jennifer Modenessi, San Jose Mercury News.
"Clayton Bailey's zany art...an amazing array of odd and comic objects"...Jesse Hamlin, San Francisco Chronicle.
"Bailey arguably is the strangest artist around... a loner, an American original in the tradition of humorists such as Mark Twain or Rube Goldberg."... Victoria Dalkey, Sacramento Bee.
"It is impressive, The book is a true work of art", Fred Berner, Antigo Daily Journal, Antigo, WI
