A glass-block wall divides a room without shutting out light. It cannot be loadbearing, but it will be a sturdy structure, thanks to metal reinforcing rods that are positioned in the mortar. Blocks sit with the mortar joints aligned and, because the blocks form the wall’s decorative finish, white mortar is normally used to give a neat result. Glass blocks can also be used to build a screen across part of a room, or (with no lumber frame) as a shower cubicle. Do not build any higher than six courses without stopping to let mortar dry overnight, otherwise the wall may collapse.
