Comments: Port Costa Artist Clayton Bailey acquired some unfired wire-cut bricks from the Port Costa Brick Works, then owned by Pacific Custom Materials, Inc., when it closed in 1998. Clayton carved the word "GOLD" into the face and fired the brick in his own kiln. He made others with the names of friends, neighbors, and family. These are one-of-a-kind bricks.
