Start to develop the lights and darks on the vase.  For the whites use less ultramarine blue.  For darks use titanium white, ultramarine blue plus a small amount of burnt umber and yellow ochre.  This allows for the background to be reflected in the shadow.  As the vase is reflective, your colours are not blended flat but can be left slightly uneven to display this.  The blue on the vase is as before but with more light and dark variation.
