Our most-read piece this week was Cynthia McIntyre’s newest Hot House installment about an on-the-market, modern renovation of an old Canton row home that’s been conjoined inside with a neighboring warehouse. The result of the renovation is a pristine two-story, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home with a roof deck and a rare (for the neighborhood) two-car garage.

The project comes from the innovative minds of local developer Building Character, which specializes in contemporary-style transformations. The home sits on the border of Fells Point and Canton, positioning the lucky buyers who can afford its $849,000 price tag with plenty to enjoy in the surrounding neighborhoods.

The most popular story on our site this week was Marion Winik’s soul-touching tribute to E-dubble, a Philadelphia rapper who lived in Hampden for some time and forged a bond with our columnist’s son, Vince. E-dubble, legally named Evan Wallace, befriended Vince years ago when the latter moved back to Baltimore after he graduated from music school. The towering, prodigious emcee and the recent graduate wound up performing around Baltimore and going on tour. Even after they went separate ways, they remained in touch.

Last month, days after they met up in Philadelphia, Williams was suddenly hospitalized with an infection and fell into a coma. He passed away weeks later.

“I feel the loss as a fan, as a friend, as a mother, as a fellow wordsmith and swimmer in the pool of the English language,” Winik writes. “He was not afraid to write about death. It was all through his work. I only wish we could hear what he would say now.”

Our most widely read story this week was Ed Gunts’ Monday real estate column, which led with the Ulman Cancer Fund’s plans to connect six East Baltimore row houses and turn them into lodging for young adult cancer patients. At present, crews are renovating the six vacant homes in the 2100 block of E. Madison Street in the EBDI Area. If all goes well with construction, by fall 2017 they’ll become the The UCF House, described as a “home away from home” for cancer patients ages 15 to 39. The planned facility will contain eight family suites, communal and dining spaces, a fitness area, a relaxation space, a library, a backyard and a roof deck.

Ceramists know something very important. It’s that clay, any way you slice it, is fun. And while for many adults, thinking of pottery making still recalls the famous scene from the movie Ghost (could be worse, right?), there’s an entire world of history, ecology, and craft that goes into making things out of clay. Baltimore Clayworks has been the local hub for Baltimore ceramics enthusiasts for the past 36 years. Through their Mt. Washington campus and community sites in under-resourced neighborhoods across the region, Baltimore Clayworks has brought the joy of clay to adults and children alike through innumerable classes, workshops, events and exhibitions. This summer, Baltimore Clayworks will be offering ten 1-week long summer camps for kids and teens, each with a different theme. They’re open to kids ages 6-15, and believe us, they’re all awesome.
