Following the procedure depicted under "How is it made?" and using enough power to bake out the metal sometimes yields a curved graphite shell resembling a chalice.  Notice the scale bar.  Because the current procedure relies on surface tension to hold the melt together, a different procedure is suggested to produce cookware of more useful size (see wok page).
Is it possible to produce curved kish objects without the origami wrinkles?  It seems there are two ways to do this.  Extremely thin graphene structures (see "dendrites") predictably lack facets.  The bowl-shaped structure to the left suggests the origami creases will vanish on sufficiently thick curved kish samples, as well.  This unusual structure was produced by precipitating graphite thickly onto the bottom of a suspended sample, rather than the stem (see the "chalice", above).
