Facets, a collection of 30 glass bowls inspired by Victorian architecture and social history, was originally created in response to The Russell-Cotes, a Victorian Art Gallery & Museum and its collection.

The colour palette for the work, of gold, yellow and amber glass stain, deep ruby and black, encapsulates Victorian opulence and craftsmanship. Rebecca employs the same method of firing nitrates into the glass to recreate the amber and yellow evident in the stained glass throughout the museum, and uses ruby glass created by the synthesis of gold, matching the technique used for the ruby glass of the Conservatory windows of the Russell-Cotes.
