There isn't anything subtle about this retro vase from Jasmineway but if you are looking for a statement vase, this is the one for you.

Forget about those chunky glass or pottery vases, plump for this small and delicate number, made up of a mini mosaic in bright colours.
4. Botanic Garden Etched Crystal
This vase showcases Portmeirion's talent, with its multi-depth etched glass and sturdy crystal design.
This is handmade in the UK by Austrian potter, Katharina Klug, in a biscuit coloured pottery and features a charming stickman design.
Is it a rock? Is it a sculpture? No, it's a funky vase from London's the Gong shop. A chic little number in a matt-finish ceramic.
7. Glass Lillia Turquoise
The shiny glass has a pleasingly iridescent look,which makes it the perfect addition to your kitchen or bathroom window.
8. Betty Jackson Black
This glass vase may look expensive but is actually reasonably priced. Exceptionally fine when used for displaying white roses and lilies.

Never has a large-scale industrial plant looked so attractive. This porcelain vase, by Maxim Velcovsky, is definitely the coolest vase around.
10. LSA Buba
Specialist glass-makers LSA hand-make and mouth-blow all their glass. This fine, curvy number also comes in green and purple.
