A year before it opened, Progress chef (and James Beard Award winner) Stuart Brioza commissioned Keenan to make the restaurant’s dinnerware—about 1,000 pieces in all. They collaborated closely on the design, and the exquisite results, the Progress Collection, is not only used at the restaurant but also available for purchase.

"Mary Mar Keenan is a San Francisco ceramic artist working in porcelain and 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."
