The artist Clayton Bailey lives in Port Costa, California, USA. Formerly professor of art at Wisconsin State University, and now professor emeritus of ceramics at California State University.

His work has been shown at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the San Francisco Art Institute, and a lot of Galleries across USA.

And Bill Gates has a Clayton Bailey robot. Have to ask him about Steve Jobs.

He has become known as the Robotics sculptor and has since 1976 built over 100 life-sized robot sculptures all made from found objects. Among them is the Marilyn Monrobot , which I believe you will see in the panorama, (or perhaps it is her sister) The sculpture made a scandal in 1997 and was thrown out of the exhibition when it was exhibited in a show at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California, Berkeley. The event was reported in newspapers ranging from the National Enquirer to the Los Angeles Times.
According to Los Angeles Times art critic William Wilson, the statue was "estimably tasteless," however other critics found her to be humorous and sensual.
Clayton Bailey calls her "the world's most beautiful female robot.

Clayton also makes many other curious or provokative things. Like the COIN OPERATED ELECTRIC CHAIR the URN FOR THE UNCONCEIVED or the GUNS FOR URBAN SHOOTING
All of his work has a sense of humor but behind the humor there is someting serious to think about.

Check his StudioCam and see what he is up to today.

Enjoy the panorama with Clayton in his studio, there are thousands of things to explore.
