Reproducing Nature: Understanding the Composition of Natural Dentition
Hatai, Yugo
Ceramists may be able to produce excellent results, but none can improve on natural dentition. Natural teeth are always the benchmark to which every ceramist should aspire.
To become a better ceramist requires training and application, and one of the best ways of training is to copy natural dentition. The amount of information that can be gained just by examining natural teeth is enormous. Natural dentition is irregular, but it is also in proportion and perfectly balanced. By trying to reproduce natural teeth, the ceramist will appreciate their diversity, and will never stop learning from the experience. This article presents one way of training to better understand the shape, color, and materials of teeth.
