glass block knee wall

I want to build a knee wall out of glass blocks in my new bathroom. I never done this before, I watched a tape on building a glass block wall but all of the instructions were related to a framed in glass block system. All had four framed sides. My knee wall will have only two (floor and the one vertical jamb side).

1) Can I build a non bearing glass block knee wall relying on just to sides?

2) If the answer ti 1 is yes, what is the best way to anchor the one jamb side to the studs and the bottom side to the floor?

3) Can I use the so called Mortarless glass block installation?

Thank you for your help.

Moe

It may be necessary for you to contact a local glass block company or supplier to get information on current accessories necessary to achieve what you are wanting.

Hope this helps!
