I make jewelry, mostly fused glass and metal clay. (I have strung jewelry on my website too, but I don't normally put that out at a decent art show.) My low end pieces are glass pendants and pieces made from copper or bronze metal clay. My high end pieces are mostly silver or glass mixed with silver. I can't fuse base metal clay around glass, because it fires at a temperature too high for the glass. I think to present a cohesive body of work, I should submit pieces that show glass and metal clay, which means they would be all silver incorporating glass. Of course that means that I don't show any pieces that are only glass, or only metal clay, and I don't show any bronze or copper pieces. And of course, there's the dichroic glass and the non-dichroic glass, so I think I need to be consistent with that too.
Here's my dilemma: I have a show app coming up shortly. I emailed them to ask them a couple of questions. In the response I was told that they really want to see the range of my work (price wise). They said they knew that goes against everything I have been told but that really was the best way to do it. In addition, they want a booth shot from an actual show, which I actually have, but it wouldn't be my first choice. I'm attaching that one.
