About Us

Special Announcements and Upcoming Events

Leaf Motif, established in 2003, is the vision of artist Catherine M.S. Cowles whose passion for Nature inspired a line of clay leaf sculptures more than twenty years ago.  Much has happened over the years as she and her husband, photographer Ovie Cowles, guided the business to where it is today.

Based in Pasadena, California, Leaf Motif offers a range of home decor products including framed original leaf collages, artist selected giclee reproduction prints, and a line of illuminations which includes the original Kandle KuffsTM, e-Kandle KuffsTM, e-Kandle WrapzTM, occasional lamps, and illuminated wall sconces.

Because all of our items are uniquely handcrafted, they may not always be readily available.  We offer on-line shopping for some of our items and, with others, we ask that you contact us to make a specific inquiry.  If an item is unavailable, we are happy to discuss your specific interest so that we may provide a similar item to you.

We participate in numerous fine arts and crafts shows throughout California and occasionally out of state.  A schedule of our upcoming events is available on this page.  You are also always free to contact us with questions or comments.  You may telephone us at (626) 827-7870.

Thanks for visiting.  We look forward to working with you.

With the holidays fast approaching, we look forward to working with you for the perfect gift this season.  Please visit us at one of our final shows of the year (listed below) or explore our website and place your order on-line or via phone to 626-827-7870 or email at 

A quick note about timing... while we try to keep a wide variety of products in our inventory, our show season has been very busy this year and we have found ourselves low on some items.  Not to worry, we can certainly make something for you if we don't have it readily available, but the more advance notice the better for us.  Generally speaking, we can turn around framed reproductions is 2-3 days, Kandle Kuffs and e-Kandle Kuffs in 7-10 days, and illuminated wall sconces is 14-21 days. 

Please do not hesitate to call or email us with your holiday shopping wish list ideas so that we can work with you to make it happen. 

As always, thanks for your support and we look forward to hearing from you.
