Baylor University - Armstrong Browning Library
Location: Waco, Texas
Glass Installation: 2007
Scope of Project:
Leaded and hand painted, mouth blown antique glasses
One of the most remarkable aspects of the Armstrong Browning Library building is its collection of sixty-two stained glass windows, believed to be the largest array of secular stained glass in the world. Room after room of brilliant, inspirational windows illustrate the poetry of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning in a stunning medium of light and color.
The creations by Willet Hauser Architectural Glass, Inc. were installed in the Cox Reception Hall. The six Willet Hauser windows carry the theme of the Brownings in Italy, the country that was home to the poets during their married life. They single out places of special significance in Florence, Rome, Vallombrosa, Asolo, and Venice.
