Laura Hagen, is the daughter of Greg Alvey, the owner of www.folkartinbottles.com. She lives in Paris, Kentucky, with her husband John, and their daughter Kayanna and their son, Thatcher. She is an avid photographer, and traveler, and especially enjoys her time with her family, including her dogs.
Early on, she has known of her father’s love of ships and folk art built in bottles. Although she had never attempted making her own bottle before, she knew it would be a well-received Christmas gift for her dad and a fun project for her to try. Her idea for the bottle was inspired by the fairly recent campaign slogan on eBay: “Whatever it is, you can get ‘IT’ here.” Realizing that eBay has proven a valuable source for bottles for her father over the years, and reinforced by the relatively easy prospect of putting “IT” in a bottle as opposed to a ship, a chair, or other more complicated scenes, the decision was made.
