Caleb Goins Art

The Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club would like to thank Platinum sponsor, Caleb Goins Art.

The artwork is produced by Florida Keys artist Caleb Goins who has spent over 15 years conceptualizing and developing this unique style of “Pierced Metal”. Each work of art is hand-drawn and hand-cut and with every pierce of the torch, movement of the grinder, the drawing comes to life, depicting a stylized version of marine and wildlife species. The finished art form, a highly detailed, sleek and dimensional hand crafted sculpture. Come shoot the tournament for a chance to win some of Caleb's custom artwork, and make sure to check out Caleb Goins Art online and on Facebook.
