Wayne and Marty Scott are well known for the superb clown shoes they make for clients all over the country. Living in semi-rural Howey-in-the-Hills, they are “can-do” kind of people. They built their own house, learning each step in much the same way they learned to make clown shoes. They talk to people with experience, use the Internet and library, and inspect things very carefully. Both artists are clowns, and both come from families that are good with their hands.
