Step into the colorful world of the Mosaic Tile House in Venice, California


LOS ANGELES — Artists Cheri Pann and Gonzalo Duran started transforming their home into a tile mosaic in 1994 to liven up the exterior, and they’ve been adding tiles ever since. Almost the entire property is now covered in beautiful tile mosaics featuring a variety of themes and hidden objects.

“At first we made the way home like the yellow brick road, and from there it just took off,” Duran said.

Pann credits Duran for coming up with the ideas for their tile projects, including their newest addition, and the Alice in Wonderland-themed wall facing the side of the house. The new wall already includes a 3D caterpillar, a rabbit hole, a queen of hearts and a white rabbit.

The duo says it’s easy to collaborate on each of their projects together. Once Duran has a new idea, he talks it over with Pann who quickly approves. Pann said: “It’s always easy for us to come to an agreement because I just think everything he does is fantastic.”

When working on a project, Pann and Duran make their own tile from raw clay as an inexpensive alternative to buying tiles. Pann paints the tiles and glazes them in preparation for Duran to place the tiles.

“Getting the tile up there doesn’t take long,” Duran said.

There’s so much to love about the Tile House, Pann herself struggles to pinpoint a favorite part. “Every time I go out to watch stuff, I fall in love with a different area,” Pann said.

The Mosaic Tile House is an outpouring of Pann and Duran’s passion for art that inspires visitors to follow their own passions. Pann said, “You can do a job to make money, but you need a passion that keeps you alive in the world.”
