Reginald Pointer

Associate Professor

  • Art Department
  • College of Fine Arts


Reginald Pointer received his MFA from Florida State University and a BFA from Howard University. He is an educator, ceramic artist, printmaker, illustrator, and wordsmith. He was born in Washington D.C. yet he was raised for the most part in New England. The rural experience of Burlington Massachusetts coupled with the urban reality of the Nation’s capital shaped and formed an artist with multiple layers of creative diversity.  This is clearly apparent when viewing his artwork. He is comfortable with a number of materials from paper to clay & everything in-between. Associate Professor Pointer is currently working at Howard University as the program coordinator in Ceramics, but he has also taught at Duke Ellington School of the Arts, The Clay House, Exceptional Children’s Foundation, Grambling State University, and Penland School of Crafts. He has taught children, adults and persons with disabilities. His work is exhibited national and internationally and if you would like to be in touch with him on a regular basis, just ask, for I’m sure he can make you a great mug.
