Wecome to my Art Therapy. Learn to control Stress. Depression and Anxiety should not be a normal part of our life. Let Georgette help you develop your hidden creativity and create a work of art in clay that you will be proud of. You do not need to be an artist, sculpting is so much more enjoyable than pottery or ceramics. It is both a relaxing, social or spiritual experience. Sculpting is very therapeutic the most beneficial part you will derive from it, is its therapeutic effects, as its far more beneficial than sitting crossed legged contemplating your navel.
If you have ever had the urge to create a portrait bust , this is the workshop for you. Georgette will guide you through all the processes in manageable, easily mastered, but exciting steps. You will learn a simple, strong hand-building method that you will be able to use on any hand-building project. More importantly, you will learn how to model a credible, expressive and individual sculptured bust – a work to be proud of. Past students have been amazed by the understanding of the human face that they have developed, and by their quickly found ability to transform this understanding into a beautiful, tactile work of art. From Georgette’s gentle manner you will be fully receptive to a wonderful creative experience.
Most sculptures are hollow and after firing can be placed inside or outside. You do not need to have any experience at all to Create your own one off pieces of collectable fine art or furnish your home with your own artwork. Join either a beginners or advanced sculpture class. All clay materials for the tuition are supplied to enable you to create an original work of art that you will be proud of.
A selection of my original art works are for sale, images and descriptions can be viewed on the ART FOR SALE.
A UTube Video of the classes can be viewed under TUITION.
When Young Living Essential oils Australasia were looking for a promotion for their business, they were recommended to seek out Georgette Schwantes. 20 individually crafted Bronzed Apple Core's were sculpted and mounted with the inscription " Is Young Living Your Core Business"
When a customer isn’t sure what they want, how to describe what they want or even if the feat is possible within the given time frame, your positive, relaxed attitude is a blessing.
I was so lucky to have found you!
Thank you so much for everything.

Prague Ceramic Doll was one of three identical wall hanging sculpture bought over seas. The Ceramic Dolls head was completly detached from the body.
On Sunday 23rd of October 2011 our Church, River of Life City Church honoured some church leaders for the genuine and valuable service within the church over a vast number of years.
In deciding how to best show our appreciation for all they have given of themselves, a verse from the bible came to mind. 2 Corinthians 4:7 explains that, as humans we are all fragile and common like a clay jar, but despite our “humanness” God has still chosen to house His all-surpassing power in any of us that choose to believe in Him.
The team of elders within the church has provided stability and wisdom to the church and the people through a great number of issues and difficult situations. Each one is like a clay jar. Still human, yet able to be a shining example of the many facets of God’s character to people in times of need.
Through a recommendation we decided to approach Georgette Schwantes from Georgette’s Art in Birkdale to create the 5 Jars as a gift to represent the service of the leaders. Each one was individually crafted and inscribed with the two foundational scriptures to the church’s vision

When Stella Maris Catholic School on Maroochydore built their new hall they wanted to add a sculpture to a wall measuring 2.5m high and 1m5cm wide and angled so that it will be visible from all main parts of the hall. It is above a ledge which is approx1.25m high and it cream in colour, they sought out Brisbane Sculptor Georgette Schwantes and commissioned her to create a Celtic Cross as a relief for the wall for the blessing and opening of their new hall
