Matilda “Tillie” Pluto was born in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in 1915. She was the daughter of Mark Fischer (formerly Kuspilich) and Mary Fischer. Tillie spent most of her life in Canton, Ohio.  Pluto and her husband, Harry, worked at Waltz Photo in downtown Canton: "I married the boss," Tillie would often tell friends. Tillie was always an artist. After discovering pottery at the Canton Art Institute (Canton Museum of Art), she was one of the founding members of the Canton Potters Guild and taught pottery at the Museum. Upon retirement, she and her husband, Harry, moved to Columbia, South Carolina in 1984. Pluto continued her work in pottery and helped found the Midlands Clay Arts Society.
