For example, you might visit some sites on the internet which depict the funerary complex of Pharaoh Djoser ( or Zozer ) from the 3rd dynasty, whose site includes:
(1) A room covered in glased faience tiles, apparently not seen in later works
(2) Various columns worked in flutings, anticipating the Greeks by perhaps a millenium or more...
And other refinements...
In addition, I believe it is known that turned stone vessels, of unbelevably fine workmanship, and cut somehow from diorite (one of the hardest granites) come from the earliest days of the Old Kingdom...
