Lauren Ko is a self-taught baker currently based out of Seattle, WA. Her pie designs with avant-garde crust designs have been featured in publications such as Vogue, O Magazine, and Buzzfeed.
“I’m driven by color and pattern, so I’m constantly brainstorming color combinations and geometric patterns that I think I can replicate with pie dough [and] fruit,” she explains to buzzfeed. “What I create during a particular baking session is also often informed by produce that is in season and what’s currently in my fridge. My final products are generally happy accidents.”
Her colorful geometric style regularly inspires fellow bakers on Instagram, where she has amassed over 185,000 followers in the ten months since she began @lokokitchen.
