Margie Hughto is a mixed-media artist known for her non-traditional approach to clay. She creates site specific richly textured and colorful collage ceramic wall reliefs, paintings, and ceramic tile murals. Hughto’s pieces are created from various sized ceramic slabs/tiles. Each is glazed and fired separately and then composed much like a collage. She includes imagery from nature and the man-made world.

Her tiles are made by pressing wet clay into plaster molds. She makes the molds using objects she repurposes. The mural she created for the subway stop beneath the World Trade Center survived the September 11, 2001 attacks. However it was removed from the wall and moved when the station was reconfigured. A number of tiles were damaged in this process and were remade.
