To Lautrec 'oiseaux/ waz-O' meant a bird or birds, but because Lautrec sat with me as I made my first bird sculptures and my first cat sculpture...I decided to call all little animals 'waz-O' in Lautrec's honor because I believe he is watching over me and guiding me as I continue to make not just birds, but all the various animals you can find in my shop…

P.S. If you like the pawprints in my banner, the paw print stamp I used was made by the talented Michelle at SparrowFootStamps...here is the listing: http://www.etsy.com/listing/99650626/cat-paw-print-rubber-stamp-siamese-cat?
