I recently found out that there's a stone pot that functions like a barrel. Is there, similarly, a stone substitute for bins? Or any other material that isn't wood or metal?

If I remember correctly, Masterwork DF adds stone bins. – SaintWacko Apr 24 at 18:01

No, there are no stone bins. Bins must be made out of wood or metal, barring strange moods producing bin-artifacts.

And don't forget, you can also store almost anything in mine-carts! They are normally made out of metal, but you can also make them of wood. They haul/hold more than any other container in the game (8.3 times as a barrel or large pot, and 5 times as much as a wheelbarrow), and your dwarves are not slowed when pushing them, unlike the weight movement penalties they have when carrying containers or objects.
