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 you might want to ask this question over in the tile forum under decorating. But I'd say it could be done, but I'm not qualified to give you viable advice.

Here's another good link for advice on that sort of thing

Hope that doesn't get me in trouble round here.

Glass blocks

Your glass block supplier is also an excellent source of information. Discuss your proposed project with them. Based on my reading about glass blocks, these guys tend to be the experts in the field and are very helpful. They have to be if they want to sell glass blocks.
