Clayton Bailey toby jug produced by Clayton Bailey of Crockett, California in 1972. Clayton George Bailey (1939 - 2020) was an American artist who worked primarily in the mediums of ceramic and metal sculpture. Throughout his career as an artist, Bailey exhibited regularly throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia in both solo and group exhibitions. In 2011, Bailey was honored with a 50-year retrospective exhibition (Clayton Bailey's World of Wonders) at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California. In 2013, Bailey and his wife, artist Betty G. Bailey, founded the Bailey Art Museum in Crockett, California. The Clayton Bailey toby jug is a self portrait created by the artist. It features a seated Bailey wearing a t-shirt with "Specimen" written on it, proclaiming his obsession with finding the remains of mythical creatures. The inside of the jug features a large phallus, Bailey claiming it represented his recurring recreational interest. This is a unique toby jug, as is another produced in the likeness of his former student, Fred Chavez, that was created at the same time.
