This question already has an answer here:

How would I use the array modifier to duplicate this pattern all the way around the top and bottom circle faces? Whenever I try to use the array modifier, the pattern just copies next to itself. Its hopefully going to be a grenade. Ive added the blend file in case anyone can help. Thanks

    $\begingroup$ Beautiful vase you got there ;) You don't need this addon if you use object offset but it makes things more straight forward I guess. $\endgroup$ – kheetor Mar 6 '18 at 11:02
