Annie (also known as Andrea) Koenig won second place in the gold/platinum category in the 2014 Saul Bell Design Award competition. She documented her artistic journey, from the first spark of the idea to enter the contest, through completing the piece and attending the awards dinner, on her website. This is the final chapter in the series—and well-timed, since the 2015 Saul Bell Design Award call for entries went out this week. Read about Annie’s design process in chapter one, about how Annie became a finalist in chapter two, and about how Annie faced the challenges that arose in chapter three.
It is said that the last 10 percent is always the hardest. This truism proved apt for Annie—the details and finishing touches presented challenges.
