What kind of stone? Alabaster? Marble? Serpentine? Soapstone?
Pots have been made from all of these.
There's strong evidence that First Peoples near Atlanta used quartzite hand tools (and lots of patience!) to carve pots from soapstone, for example.
See Traces on the Appalachians: A Natural History of Serpentine in Eastern North America, by Kevin T. Dann.
