Or maybe you own a beautiful china vase.</p><p>There are a lot of delicate dishes and trinkets in the home of Seattle artist <a href="http://www.antiquesatoz.com/artatoz/krafft/">Charles Krafft</a>. But his pieces go beyond pastels and pretty flowers.</p><p>Krafft has made a career out of messing with our expectations of ceramic art.
