The Watts Towers

The Watts Towers are a mixture of eccentricity, dedication, and resourcefulness. Sam Rodia spent 36 years of his life building the towers by hand in his back yard, using found materials like bottles, ceramic kitchen wares, concrete and wire hangers. His own mosaic cathedral. It’s a great reason to visit and support Watts which has yet to shake it’s bad name. The $5 admission includes a guided tour and supports the Watts Foundation art program for children.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
