I called the finished piece, “Generations.” detail of Generations by Beth HessMy grandmother first taught me to crochet and the granny square is my go-to when I need something new to make. It’s portable and lets me experiment with new colors and textures.

I pieced the individual squares together much like my mother joins pieces of cotton to form colorful quilts.

And the color inspiration itself came from the threads I’d created in glass–my contribution to these generations of craft.

See the finished piece alongside the work of many talented local artists in a variety of media through May 26 at the artdc Gallery
