The St Cuthman window.
Chidham
The St Cuthman & St Wilfrid window was created for St Mary's Chidham, a beautiful Saxon church in a rural coastal setting.

Created in heavily acid etched stained glass the intense colours give way to transparency to allow light into the church.

Both the Saints shown in the design for the A-symetric openings have local links. The window depicts In the left light St Cuthman taking his mother to Steyning along the coast - in a wheel barrow! In the right side of the window St Wilfrid is teaching the local people to fish.

As St Wilfrid is hauling in the fishing nets, the fish are leaping to him and sea-gulls are swooping to join the activity.

The window was installed in 2009.
