There are infinite ways to represent data. Here’s one of the more creative ones: Alice Thudt makes pottery — such as cups, plates, or teapots — that show data! Her project Life in Clay started off as a twist on a hobby, and has since become part of her PhD research on personal data visualization. In our conversation with Alice, we learn all about what it takes to put data on the table.

PS: At the end, you’ll also hear a quick update on the Information is Beautiful awards, where Alice scored an honorable mention! Congratulations!
