Has this happened to anyone?
When I did a Cone 06 fire, I had pieces of firebrick fly off and stick to my glazed pottery! I then get these little 'burrs' in my beautiful work and I have to sand them off.
I just vacuumed the heck out the inside of my kiln again, so hoping that will solve this ongoing issue.
Any other advice?

Hopefully it's just the lid. Will have to take a look at it.
Don't have a vent system.....just lots of fans and open windows in my studio.

do you have pics of the firebrick contaminants? usually you can tell where the firebrick came from just from what it looks like - since many lids have a refractory mortar coating on them, the brick looks different than those found on the walls.
also, you said your kiln doesn't have a vent, but does it have vent intake holes in the lid?
