Also consider not glazing the insides; I recall someone telling me that plant roots prefer/do better with an unglazed interior than a glazed one. Or just glaze the top third of the inside.

My Grade 10 Art pupils have painted tea pots with underglaze and we will use transparent glaze to finish them off. They have drainage holes as they will be used as planters in a sculpture garden. How do I prevent the glaze from running out of the holes during firing?
Since these are going to be used in a sculpture garden, and may get wet quite a bit, I believe that the glaze is important to the survivability of the sculpture. I would recommend the small cone shaped brushes that come in the large pottery tool selections. Other option is a q-tip to clean our the holes. As this is a group project, not a production type thing, the few extra minutes should not be much of a problem. I would probably make certain the bottoms are clear obviously. You did not mention the firing range, or whether you would be using stilts?
