Creator not accepting inquiries

Why spend the time and money on handmade ceramics? “Because in the end,” said Alter, “the food is the most important part”—and its presentation matters. These plates “are made for me; no one else will have them. That, to me, is really special.”

Most of Nightbird’s plates and serving pieces were handmade by Mary Mar Keenan of MMClay in San Francisco.

Mary Mar Keenan is a San Francisco ceramic artist working in stoneware. "My work is typically full of color and spontaneity, yet my forms are controlled and concise. I do my best to reflect the beauty of the nature that is around me both in the clay itself and within my glazing techniques. The possibilities are endless and for that I am grateful," she says.

Working out of her Hayes Valley studio, Mary Mar has produced tableware for an array of top-tier restaurants in the Bay Area and other cities in the U.S., including Nightbird (Kim Alter's new restaurant, opening in SF in 2016), Single Thread Farms (Michelin Star contender, opening in May/June 2016 in Healdsburg), A16 (SF and Rockridge), Octavia (SF), BearCat (New Orleans - opening in 2016), Wildhawk (SF), BirdDog (Palo Alto) and Alloy (Miami).

In 2014, she designed and produced a collection of work for Stuart Brioza's (James Beard Award Winner Best Chef: West) most recent venture, The Progress. From this collaboration The Progress Collection was developed and has been featured in Food and Wine magazine, Remodelista, Saveur and San Francisco magazine.
