Yes Trevor, you can use glass blocks for skylights in a couple of different ways, If the glass bricks are to be walked on then they need to be in a load bearing grid (either concrete or steel) using purpose made glass paving bricks or if they are not required to take weight then a lighter scale grid system could be used (like when set in a ceiling for example. With this sytem you could use ordinary glass bricks. The paving system is more expensive than the other system but both have a place in today's homes. I hope this is helpful for you Tevor.
