Basse taille

DEFINITION

French for "cut low." In jewelrymaking, a process in which gold or silver is engraved, etched, stamped, chiseled, or carved with a design in low relief. Translucent colored enamels are applied, drying between coats, and a clear coat is made level with the rim, followed by a fixing enamel. Where the pattern cuts deep the enamel is a darker color, and where it?s shallow the color is lighter. Because the enamel and the metal on which it is applied can be very glossy, some areas of a relief can reflect light differently than others.
