Childhood days spent by the sea accompanying his father on different boats around the island, are the primary source of some of the artist's most enduring memories. It is from these memories that the artist derives his inspirations, which he then expresses into tangible form to produce the works of art that comprise this exhibition. In 2007, Stiefnu was also granted a one-month scholarship in Sciacca, Sicily, after being awarded the best design of an original ceramic product as part of the Interreg IIIA MedPot Project. There he met the late artist, Cosimo Barna, whose guidance laid the foundations for further development of the fish and prawn concept.
