A Touch of Glass

This exhibition takes a look at the rise and fall of the Dumbarton Glassworks Company and its company directors, the Dixon family, and subsequent ownership by James Christie. The Glassworks was one of the largest industrial concerns in Scotland during the first thirty years of the nineteenth century. It was a key player in the British Glassmaking Industry.

Indigo was tasked with interpreting this fascinating tale through a series of graphic panels. I photographed the glass obelisk, a major exhibit in the exhibition and adopted these colours to create a graphic theme to create different moods in each of the exhibition rooms. Translucent effects were used on the backgrounds to continue the theme of glass.
