Is this more or less what you're talking about? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass_beadmaking You've raised a very good question, as well as teaching me something. My guess is that if your other medium is more widely taken as A Real Art Medium, and if you can make the connections you need to make between principles and practices of art on the one hand and your lampwork on the other, you stand a reasonable chance of success. Go very heavy on the technical terminology of art - design principles and all that: look to the Content Standards for art that are on the California Department of Education Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/pn/fd/. Make sure your photos are exceptional, too. Best of luck, and please keep us posted here. I'd like to know how this goes for you.
