Beauty spot Fullers Mill Garden near Bury St Edmunds stars in ITV 'flower-powered treat'




A beauty spot near Bury St Edmunds is starring in a TV 'flower-powered treat'.

Fullers Mill Garden, in West Stow, was used as the location to film a new ITV ident which will appear between programmes every day this month.

The ident was created by Sharon Walters, a London-based artist who creates hand-assembled collages celebrating black women, in collaboration with Mark Lane, an award-winning landscape gardener.

To produce the ident, a hand assembled paper collage was made, then enlarged on sustainable and recycled material.

The piece was then layered and installed within a landscape of a silver birch woodland.

Mark took to social media this morning to reveal the ident.

He said: "It's 1 Jan 2021 and I can now share. Millions of ITV viewers will get a flower-powered telly treat. I, with Sharon Walters, have recreated the ITV ident.

"A 4m x 8m collage in a forest.

"It will appear between programmes every day in Jan."

In a video, describing the project, Mark praised Fullers Mill for its 'most beautiful landscape'.

Responding via tweet, Fullers Mill said: "Thank you for choosing Fullers Mill to showcase your wonderful talents."

The project was part of ITV Creates which has seen different artists create their own interpretations of the broadcaster's logo.

Fullers Mill was created by the late Bernard Tickner, who spent more than 50 years working on the garden.

In 2013, the garden was gifted to Perennial.
