Hassina specialises in kiln-formed glass, using both fusing and slumping techniques to create vessels and objects that enrich homes and spaces whilst inviting the viewer to think about the world differently.
Her current work concerns cultural identity. It explores her experiences of straddling different cultures and the challenges of navigating in-between-ness. She creates vessels and objects that are embedded with, or formed by, carefully crafted fragments of text that she writes using transliteration: English words in Urdu characters, creating a hybrid of languages which mimics her bi-racial, English-Pakistani, background.
She graduated from the University of Sunderland with an MA (Distinction) in Glass & Ceramics and her final piece 'Hybridity. Do not ask' was acquired for the permanent collection at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens.
