The good news: I got my first commissioned ceramic mural! Yipppee!
The bad news: It's currently bisquing, and the kiln (an old L&L electric)
has been at High for the last 4 hours, and is only glowing softly! What to
do! This puppy's been burning (candling +) since Wednesday afternoon
(EST).... Should I assume that after 28 hours, enough heat work has been
done (cone 05 hasn't even begun to bend!)? At what point is that mural
going to be toast? Should I just trust the cones and hope that one day soon
they will bow their little heads?! HELP!

Kiln should have gotten to cone 05 many hours ago. Sounds like an
element or two may have bitten the dust. Just have to wait til the
kiln cools to see if additional firing is needed.
