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.
