MMclay is a small production business specializing in handmade ceramic tableware and homeware. Founded by artist and designer MaryMar Keenan in 2015, MMclay began as a one-woman show which first catapulted into the public eye with the introduction of the Progress Collection, designed specifically for the SF restaurant. Since then, the lines have expanded, along with studio space and team members.
Now working in a 1500 square foot studio, we carry 6 lines of tableware and a new line of handmade lighting pendants. Pieces are made to order, which allows the MMclay team of makers to take care in customizing each item.
There are currently two San Francisco locations. We produce all our wares from our studio space, which doubles as our Showroom (and sometimes art gallery or event space!) The open space located on 69 Gough St. invites visitors to take a peek at the process. You’ll find our other shop right around the corner on 395 Linden St. in a charming 1964 Airstream transported from South Carolina, MaryMar’s home state.
MMclay has been featured in Food & Wine Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Goop, restaurants around the world, and most importantly- your dining table.
Our pottery is designed to make daily rituals special. Whether our pieces join your life as part of your morning coffee, family dinner, or home decor, we hope they can provide a reminder of the slow beauty that human hands can create.
