Rich Krupicka

Those of you who viewed the silent auction items are sure to have seen the stunning, life-sized wood carving of a firefighter. Some of you may even have had the pleasure of seeing it carved. Wood carver Rich Krupicka of Wild West Wood Crafts is famous in this area for being an accomplished chainsaw artist. He has been featured in The Canyon Courier and High Timber Times. He combines vision and artistry with skillful craftsmanship, and his carvings are quickly recognized by many in the Front Range.


In addition to the firefighter carving, Rich also donated an eagle he carved for the silent auction. Rich’s ability to recreate wildlife within the medium of wood is unparalleled by any other, making Rich’s carvings one of a kind works of art. He doesn’t try to recreate an exact replica of an animal, but instead works to give it the feeling or emotion it should have. You can drive by and see what Rich is doing at Wild West Wood Crafts, 9240 Hwy 73 in Evergreen.
