Early in his career Abdalla drew from his knowledge of ancient Sudanese practices as well as his training in England to design utilitarian pots with delicate glazes. His later forms, with which these examples belong, are the result of bold experiments with new slips and surface treatments.

Vase with red and dark brown surfaced decorated with yellow rectangular shapes and swooping black lines.
