Craft Arts International is a well-established independent journal devoted to the documentation of contemporary craftwork and "new art forms" that fall within the broad categories of the visual and applied arts. However, it is not limited by these classifications and vigorously traverses traditional boundaries in the pursuit and exploration of innovative concepts and standards of excellence that challenge conventional aesthetic experience and/or enrich the quality of life.
Hence, artistic works in ceramics, glass wood, fibre/textile, metal/jewellery and mixed media are strongly represented in the magazine's editorial content, along with painting, printmaking and sculpture.

In addition to publishing articles and photographs which reflect the work, lifestyles and philosophies of today's artists and craftspeople, Craft Arts International plays a vital role in the promotion and marketing of contemporary designer-made products.
