Extracting iodine

I did an electrolysis of KI and now I have a solution of KOH and I3- anions. I want to preparate elemental iodine by sublimation. However, when I start heating the solution, it starts to sublimate iodine with water. H2O steam is with the iodine on a flask and then it condenses and take crystallized iodine back down to the solution. How should i extract the iodine without water?

(I purchase all my cemicals and lab equipment from brumer)
