The Sphere Fountain called an Aqualens – was designed by Allison in 1999, as the centrepiece
of a show garden at the 2000 Chelsea Flower Show. It is a beautiful example of a design that
incorporates many elements, being both a geometric water feature that is also an artwork.
Similarly, with the increasing demand for aesthetic dentistry, clinicians must still remember and
adhere to standard recognised principles. These include consideration of the biomechanical
environment, tooth preservation, appropriate design, and meticulous construction. At the same
time, they need to have an eye for balance and harmony in order to provide functional and
aesthetically pleasing restorations.
