RevolutionPlot3D: Specifying the axis of rotation

When I plot y=x^2 as... f[x_] := x^2 Plot[f[x], {x, 0, 2}] RevolutionPlot3D[{f[x]}, {x, 0, 2}, AxesLabel -> {x, z, y}] ... I get the function rotated about the y-axis (i.e., a parabola). But what If I want to rotate the function about the x-axis so I get a funnel-shaped graphic? Is there an easy way to do this? I can plot the function in terms of y (x=y^1/2) and get the funnel but it would easier to just specify the axis of rotation. Can this be done?
