St Cuthbert’s Portsmouth
St Cuthbert's Church, Copnor, Portsmouth
St Cuthbert’s have commissioned two pieces of art in enamelled steel by Mel Howse in 2013 and 2017.
The design for the font at St Cuthbert’s is based on the notion of a vortex of water rising out of the church floor. The form of the font is dynamic and full of energy; a centred and powerful form. The piece is sculptural and truly in the spirit of original design. It creates a focus for baptism within this newly re-ordered worship space.
Behind the altar a steel reredos continues the visual theme.
