Bill Dorman is a Goulburn based maker, artist and teacher working in metal, wood and other materials that cross his path. Dorman's work ranges from fine jewellery to steel sculpture, furniture to useless widgets, set design to installations and anything else that takes his fancy. Dorman has been drawn to the form associated with boats for some time, with its inference to vessel, journey, distress, loss, refugees, politics, migration, invasion and so much more. The boats in ‘Adrift’ are an initial series of five made from the Muntz metal capping from the original Goulburn Court House dome which was made in England in the early 1800’s. In the time since then, a beautiful patina has developed. It has literally been the protective covering for justice in this city of Goulburn and beyond. These rare and precious metal pieces have waited in Dorman's resource yard for many years and were a perfect fit for their inherent boat shape and their history. This artwork has been made during the COVID-19 era, however, it is Dorman's response to the past several years which have been a time of questioning and great upheaval, globally and personally. Mon – Fri 9am – 5pm Sat 12pm – 4pm Closed Sun and Public Holidays
