I’d call this a very successful experiment from photographer Fabian Oefner. Must’ve been quite a eureka when he first discovered this process, which he calls Millefiori, after the decorative glass-fusing technique that produces similar patterns. Don’t miss the short making-of video here that shows off what it looks like in action.
