Mundy Hepburn makes blown glass forms and fills them with rare gas mixtures such as helium, neon argon, krypton, and xenon. His designs are often inspired by nature but activated by his artist's imagination as well as high frequency static electricity. The end result are lively forms colored in kaleidoscopic patterns of swirling or multicolored light that never fail to fascinate.

As a little boy Mundy watched Paul Geyer making glass animals at the Guilford  Handcraft Fair.  Once home, after making sure his parents were safely upstairs asleep, Mundy tried his own hand at melting glass and melted an old light bulb on the " Magic Chef. " The rest, as they say, is history.  Technical challenges inspire Mundy and he realizes his creations through resourcefulness and Yankee pluck. Over the years, he has invented gas mixtures, glass compositions, transformers, and working techniques in his
quest to make great art.

Mundy has had numerous solo exhibitions in galleries, museums and public spaces  throughout the country. His work is in many permanent public collections including The New Britain Museum of American Art as well as the Museum of Neon Art.
At this point, I feel like I have  finally begun to just barely scratch the surface of what's possible in luminous glass sculpture. For every question I find an answer to, twelve more pop up, each more interesting than the last. - Mundy Hepburn
