Champlevé, in the decorative arts, an enamelling technique or an object made by the champlevé process, which consists of cutting away troughs or cells in a metal plate and filling the depressions with pulverized vitreous enamel. The raised metal lines between the cutout areas form the design outline. Champlevé can be distinguished from the similar technique of cloisonné by a greater irregularity in the width of the metal lines. After the enamel has annealed and cooled, it is filed with a Carborundum stone file, smoothed with pumice stone, and polished.
