Take a Tour of the Tile House

It's back! Last year, a group of de LaBbers headed to the hills - the Hollywood Hills, that is - to tour octogenrian Geoge Ehling's amazing home for Obscura Day (an internation "day of expeditions, back-room tours and hidden treasures in your hometown"). George has poured his own sweat equity in the home, tiling much of it by himself for decades. The house, built in 1927, was bought in 1967 and George has been designing and creating intricate tilework ever since. 

Join us once again, as George generously leads a tour through his amazing home, with generous support from furniture showroom Ford & Ching. Learn how George has used found materials ranging from wine and beer bottles to old discarded tiles, cut down to create hand-made tesserae for these mosaics. 

The tour is limited to only 35 people, and will likely sell out quickly. We can only take a limited number of vehicles to the site, so when you RSVP through Eventbrite (no Facebook rsvp's will be honored), you'll receive more detailed information about where to meet and what to do.

This year, we're asking participants to carpool to the home, and will be meeting at El Paseo de Cahuenga Park as a group prior to the tour.
