The way I read it, he applies rules of proportion and makes use of space as
well as substance, he arranges his tanks inspired by a love of natural form
in a an expression which is recognisably of the Japanese Zen tradition. So
you could argue is was a religion for him !

In the end there is no doubt he works at what he does and succeeds. He has
considerable experience and understands his materials, like a good artist. I
have to confess I have not spent enough time working on my tanks to really
get the feel of them though I have tried and continue to do so. When I look
at pictures of his work I realise there is much I have yet to learn.
