Have had success bending thin sheets of wood around the pipe for my woodstove when hot. it is about 7cm in radius and i can see exactly when it is bent enough. There is only a small amount of movement after that.
See here for more info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_bending_of_wood
Any metal pipe and a suiatable heat gun/blow torch/clothing iron/molten lava should do for a small number of piezes

Good luck!
