In the heart of Shropshire, amidst the rolling hills and quaint villages, resides a creative soul named Andy. Once a helicopter engineer, Andy found his passion taking a unique turn after searching for a creative outlet to relieve the stress of work in the aviation world. His new journey led him into the realm of robot sculpture creation. Fuelled by a desire to spread messages of acceptance and respect for differences, he began his artistic venture by crafting a series of handmade recycled robots known as the "Bert" family.

To embody the message of embracing diversity and celebrating individuality, Berty Bellows just like the rest of the Bert family is designed to be a tangible representation of these values.

Berty Bellow's physical form is a masterpiece of creativity and resourcefulness. Andy's expertise as a helicopter engineer seamlessly merged with his newfound passion for sculpture. Berty Bellow's body is fashioned from a vintage Kodak Pocket Number 1 camera, breathing life into the phrase "one man's trash is another man's treasure."
