How to create object rotating curve along line

I try to learn blender and want to create an object by rotating Bezier curve along straight line or axis. For example create a bottle from its shape. How can I do this in Blender? Thanks.

Sounds like either ‘spin’ or you can also use bevel object

bevel is better as you can real-time tweek the shape and see what effect it has (like real pottery)

Thanks again :slight_smile: “BevOb” is Bevel in human language… I would never found this button without a tutorial.
