I like this. It has form, colour, 3 dimensional elements. Title is NG style. I would have shot it from a higher POV to get the top rim of the vase flat and parallel to your frame, and not falling off to the right. As it is the vase looks tilted to the right and not vertical. The BG is not totally black, and it doesn't HAVE to be, as it could be in a gallery with a cloth BG that itself is not 100% black. There is a small reflection highlight from a nearby light source, not bad but I might have tried to diffuse that. Publishable? A fair chance.

I was wondering if someone would have the gonads to put some pottery or other art in their photo ! People always link NG to a wild animal !

Good Job.
