Okay. Is it "okay" (safe) to leave outside surface unglazed and the inside surface glaze? Since it is stoneware and porcelain mixture i would think that it okay since it is vitrified (i did the vitrification test and it has >1%) and i thought the only purpose of glaze was to protect the decoration.

I don't think that is a problem, personally. The pots if fired to temperature should work without a glaze, but a glaze makes things easier to clean, feel better to the touch especially around the lips, and deepens the surface. However, if for aesthetic reasons you with to leave a surface unglazed as in the outside, go for it.
Oh and I did delete the second posting of this query.

Thanks for deleting it. Ill be sure to put the glaze over the lip to assure coverage (for the lips) i think its interesting to have to 2 textures, smooth interior and satin on the outside

You might try the "sharpie" test. Take a sharpie marker and draw on one of your culls, then see what it takes to remove those marks. Sometimes it's surprising how porous, non porous surfaces can be.
