These glass letters are fragments from original letters by my grandmother's father, that he sent home during the World War II (The Great Patriotic War in USSR)). He went through the whole war from 1941 to 1945, but was killed while liberating Poland in February 1945, just two months before the Victory Day. My grandmother didn't know anything about his death (she just stopped getting letters from him) and was hoping to meet him alive for a long time. Only a few years later she got the last letter concerning him: an official document from the military administration which told "your father went missing in February 1945". In these glass letters all the phrases, my grandfather's handwriting (as well as his spelling mistakes) are original. I kept them as close to original as possible, just chose the most expressive quotes and structured them into a story. #image #crafts #finearts #handwriting #glass #letters
