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.

Holiday Shopping Note:

With holiday gift giving rapidly approaching, we want to make certain that special person in your life receives his or her gift on time.  Thus, a quick note about our timing...

All items that are in our existing stock will be shipped within 24 hours after you have placed your order.  Orders placed by December 20th will have a very good chance of arriving prior to Christmas via USPS Priority Mail.  However, we have had a very busy holiday show schedule and are now quite low on stock in some design categories.  Because of this, and because it takes about a week to make most items from scratch, we strongly suggest you contact us to make certain we have your desired gift available.  We want to work with you to fulfill your holiday gift giving ideas and because all of our items are hand made by us, the more time you can provide, the better chance we will have to turn your plans into reality. 

If you are shopping for a holiday themed illumination, you should check out our newly re-designed Holly Berry Kandle Kuffs and e-Kandle Kuffs.  These are now available for ordering by visiting either our Kandle Kuffs page or e-Kandle Kuffs page.

We also now have available in both the Kandle Kuffs and e-Kandle Kuffs, a very sweet Victorian era Father Christmas set that features Santa, angels, and a quaint village scene.  This design is not shown on our website, but can be seen in our booth at the upcoming shows listed below.  If you would like to see an image, pl
ease contact us. We'll be happy to email one to you.

Leaf Motif captured on video!  During the summer, we participated in a video promotion for a new service created by the fine folks at yellowpages.com called mybook.  This was our first experience with showcasing our work and discussing the creative process in a video format.  The video was created in conjunction with the 27th Connoisseur's Marketplace in Menlo Park that took place on July 19th.  Check it out below.
