Wednesday, September 24, 2003 - 06:32

Millions of viewers will soon be able to deck their halls with boughs of beautiful molded-glass treasures when legendary ornament designer Christopher Radko debuts on the TV shopping network HSN and hsn.com. Mr. Radko will share his ornate, handcrafted, European glass ornaments with HSN viewers September 27 at 5 - 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. - 12 a.m. and September 28 at 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. and 6 - 7 p.m. (ET).

Mr. Radko has been creating holiday ornaments for almost 20 years using old-world traditions handed down for generations. Created in small cottages throughout Europe by dedicated artisans, his collectible ornaments have grown to become a holiday tradition in homes across the nation. The renowned designer has spruced up the holidays for some of Hollywood's biggest stars, including Barbra Streisand, Robert Redford, Elizabeth Taylor, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey and Robert DeNiro, to name a few.

Previously only available in the finest department stores and small boutiques, Mr. Radko will offer HSN viewers a tremendous array of holiday baubles ranging in price from $30 for ornaments to $75 for fanciful snowman cookie jars.

"My creations are tangible works of art that do the intangible: they lift our spirits, warm our hearts and give color to our lives," says Mr. Radko. "I can't wait to share these precious holiday gifts with HSN viewers."

"Christopher Radko represents the pinnacle in high quality for all seasonal products," said Marty Nealon, Executive Vice President of Merchandising for HSN. "We look forward to having him lead the charge as we gear up for the holiday season."
