Should I use mortared glass block or the snap together kind in tub/shower alcove wall?

I am adding vertical glass block strips to my tub/shower alcove wall to bring in the natural light. These strips will be one block wide (8") and 4 blocks tall. Should I use mortar or is it possible to actually seal the snap together system from constant assault of water? Which is the best system?

I use a company in NY that pre fabs mortared panels. It really works out great. http://www.glassblockwarehouse.com/

Thank you for your imput! I was hoping to get this done in the next few days though.....just four bricks stacked on top of each other on both sides of the shower head shouldn't be too hard just concerned about water leaks. Sooo mortar or click together plus silicone?

I would say mortar. It's proven

That is what I was thinking. Snap together just sounded too easy for the results that I want! Thank you for your time and input! I really appreciate it!

Good luck with it. Send me a pic when it's done. Sounds like it will look cool
