About Ginger Davis Allman
I’m the person behind The Blue Bottle Tree. I write the articles on this website and do the research, testing, and reviews myself. I’m also a polymer clay teacher and artist sharing at workshops and events around the world.
I left a career in molecular biology to stay home and raise my three children. Polymer clay was my sanity during those messy years! I loved that I could create alongside my children. Of course I still love polymer clay, and my kids are now (almost) grown. I live in Springfield, Missouri with my business consultant husband, Gary, three ancient cats, and three blue bottle trees. Yes, I really do have blue bottle trees in my yard. You can see pictures and read about them here.
