I've never seen true glass blocks done without mortar/grout, and am not aware of a system that would facilitate their installation in a horizontal position without the use of mortar.

thanks for your reply, ok, even if you use mortar how does the blocks stay up? say doing an area of 14 feet long by 7feet wide, like how do they make glass block floors without falling through?
regards
Bryan
