We analyze the lower semicontinuous envelope of the curvature functional of Cartesian surfaces in codimension one. To this aim, following the approach by Anzellotti-Serapioni-Tamanini, we study the class of currents that naturally arise as weak limits of Gauss graphs of smooth functions. The curvature measures are then studied in the non-parametric case. Concerning homogeneous functions, some model examples are studied in detail. Finally, a new gap phenomenon is observed.
