Baum Pottery

Baum Pottery is beautiful and functional. You’ll use these beautiful pieces by Mike and Karen Baum every day, as do the owners of Mooresville Mercantile in their own home.   We sell our two most popular pieces online: the Baum Mug and the Baum Small Mixing Bowl.  Other pieces of Baum Pottery are available and may be ordered by calling us at 256-309-9085 or emailing

Each piece of Baum Pottery is made in Lebanon, Ohio, in a studio next to the Baums’ farmhouse.  Colors are varied, primarily earth-tone and include their speckled “trout” finishes.   If you need a specific color-way, please contact us prior to ordering.

Place settings are available by special order.  A four-piece plate setting (dinner plate, salad plate, mug and soup bowl) is $75 per place setting, plus shipping.  Pasta bowls or handled soup mugs may be substituted for the soup bowl at a small increase in price.

Please note:  Baum Pottery is stoneware, so it may, on occasion, scratch a stone countertop, such as granite.  An occasional swipe over the bottom of the piece with a sandpaper should prevent any problems.

Baum Mug

Perfect for coffee, tea, hot chocolate or soup!  This is our most popular-selling mug because of its classic farmhouse styling and its comfortable size.  Comes with a recipe for making chocolate cake in a mug! Mug is a generous 5 inches tall and 5 inches diameter at the top (6 1/4 inches with handle).   Colors vary.  Gift packages with a Baum Mug, Recipe and Green Alchemy Herb and Mercantile Co. tea are available.
